    Are there any risks of injury whilst changing a light bulb


    People often joke about the simplicity of changing a light bulb, but this seemingly menial task can actually carry a risk of serious injury. If you’ve been involved in accidents at work or you’ve been exposed to risks of injury whilst changing a light bulb, it may be possible to claim compensation.

    What are the risks of injury whilst changing a light bulb?

    If you’ve been tasked with the job of changing a light bulb at work, you should be provided with suitable equipment to do so safely; changing a bulb may seem very simple, but it can be a dangerous task. Here are some of the potential risks of injury whilst changing light bulbs:

    • falls from height
    • cuts and lacerations caused by the bulb breaking
    • burns from touching a hot bulb
    • electrical injuries

    If you are asked to change a bulb and you are required to use a ladder, it is essential that the equipment you are provided with meets safety standards. If you have been injured in a work accident and you were not to blame, for example, you were given a faulty ladder, you may wish to consider claiming work injury compensation.
