    Top 3 injuries when working on the underground

    London Underground is one of the most famous and iconic transport services in the world and is used by people from across the world every day by workers, tourists and more. Most people who work on or use the Underground won’t ever become injured during their travels or working day but a small amount of London Underground staff are still coming to harm whilst trying to make a living.

    Muscle damage, broken bones and head injuries whilst working on the underground

    Slips, trips and falls are amongst the most common accidents that occur on the underground and can lead to injuries like broken legs and head injuries. These accidents can occur due to things such as spillages, loose tiles and debris that’s been left on the floor. Because the tube is so busy, crushes often occur on the underground and they can cause damage to the muscles, bones and even the brain if someone is left struggling to breathe.

    If you ever do have an accident whilst working on the tube, you need to report it and seek medical attention immediately. Reporting a hazard can prevent other people from sustaining similar injuries. Many employees in all industries have come to harm because of negligence on the part of their employer. Health and safety regulations may be ignored and only partially complied with. At Accident Advice Helpline, we can come to your assistance if you have been hurt whilst working on the underground and think that your employer failed in their duty of care to you. We have an excellent track record when it comes to work-related personal injury claims.

    In late 2016, London Underground was fined half a million pounds after a maintenance worker had a fall at a disused station. The employee fell 9.5 metres from a scaffold tower when they were cleaning an old lift shaft. The ensuing investigation said that London Underground management failed to plan, manage and supervise the worker’s activities adequately. The worker was left with several injuries.
