A boat builder worker accident claim could be made by an employee of a boat building company who has suffered an accident at work that was not their fault and wishes to file a personal injury claim fro compensation.
Anybody who suffers an injury at work that was not their fault, no matter what trade or profession you work in, is entitled to make a claim for compensation, and those in the boat building industry regularly operate heavy tools and machinery which can potentially be hazardous for the worker.
It is the responsibility of the owner of the business to ensure that all workers are sufficiently trained in their jobs and that they are supplied with the correct safety equipment in order to work safely. This is just a small portion of the health and safety regulations that all employers have to abide by. If they fail in this legal duty, as well as having to face a boat builder worker accident claim, they could find themselves being prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive,
