    Injuries for tilers

    Most people don’’t head to work each day worrying about accidents at work, but accidents do happen and often, you can get injured when you least expect it. If you’’ve been injured at work and you weren’’t to blame, there is a chance that you could claim compensation. This is true for accidents across all professions, including common injuries for tilers.

    What are the most common injuries for tilers?

    If you’’re a tiler, you probably work with power and precision tools on a daily basis. While equipment may improve the quality and speed of a job, it can also increase the risk of injuries for tilers.

    The most common injuries for tilers include cuts, lacerations and soft tissue damage, which are caused by contact with the sharp edges of tiles and using machinery incorrectly.

    Using power tools may also result in hearing loss and there may be a risk of eye injuries. In many cases, injuries for tilers may be minor; however, they can also be much more severe.

    In some cases, you can cause permanent damage to the tendons and ligaments in the fingers or wrist; loss of limbs is also possible when the nerves are severely damaged and there are very deep flesh wounds and a high risk of infection.

    When working as a tiler, it’s important to understand how to use machinery safely and to employ the correct techniques. You should also give every task your full attention and use the relevant personal protective equipment.

    What should I do if I’’ve had an accident at work?

    If you’’ve been injured at work, it’s important to notify your boss and seek medical assistance for your injuries. If you’’ve had an accident which wasn’’t your fault, you may wish to claim work injury compensation. If you were provided with defective equipment, for example, this indicates that your employer was liable for your work accident.
