Working at a brewery can be extremely hazardous as it involves handling hoppers and sacks weighing in excess of 25kg in confined spaces on a daily basis. If your employer made it an unsafe working environment and you subsequently suffered an injury, then it is your right and responsibility to make a claim. Common injuries at a brewery include falls from unsafe working areas, broken bones from heavy items and breathing difficulties from enclosed spaces. You can also make a claim if you were not given appropriate training before performing certain tasks at work. If you have been injured at a brewery, then you need to make sure that that the accident was reported so that you can make a claim at a later date. The Health and Safety Executive must also be informed about serious injuries.
Should I claim?
Pursuing work injury compensation could be beneficial to all parties involved. If you were hurt while working at a brewery, then you owe it to yourself, your fellow employees and your employer to make a no win, no fee* claim in order to improve health and safety measures for all in the future. First and foremost, a claim will help you to win compensation that will ease the financial burden of injuries sustained in an accident. Seeking a claim will also help hold your employer accountable for their actions. Employees are often worried about making a claim, as they believe it may increase the probability of them losing their jobs or making daily work life uncomfortable. The truth is that the majority of people successfully make a claim and return to work without any ill feeling from their employer. Employers should be insured anyway, so it will not affect them directly if you win a substantial sum.
