    How to claim kitchen staff injury compensation


    Working in a kitchen is a very different experience from anything you might be familiar with working in your kitchen at home.

    For example you will be preparing and cooking a variety of dishes, or at least helping out with various kitchen tasks if you have an entry-level job.

    This workplace can be intense, hot and stressful at times, and that makes it all the more important to pay good attention to health and safety matters.

    Everyone working in a kitchen has the right to be able to work safely. We know there will always be potential dangers, such as working with knives for example.

    However if proper training is given and the kitchen area is clean and safe at all times, there is far less chance anyone would have good cause to claim kitchen staff injury compensation.

    How might an injury occur and affect an individual?

    Kitchens are fast-paced and therefore they can be very intense. There are situations where many people will be doing different things all at once.

    You can see then how important it is to ensure the kitchen is clean and free from hazards that might cause someone to slip, trip or fall.

    Cleaners and kitchen hands should be employed to make sure the area is always clean and tidy, although of course everyone else has a duty to do their bit as well.

    There could be other dangers as well, such as working with hot oil, pans that are hot and spitting fat and sharp knives. With so many potential hazards existing in a kitchen, it is easy to see just how easy it might be for someone to be injured.

    Are you in a position to claim kitchen staff injury compensation?

    Knowing whether you could claim compensation or not can be a real challenge at times. For example you might end up being hurt and not knowing whether someone else was at fault or not. This must be the case if you are going to claim successfully.

    However when you can call Accident Advice Helpline to get no-obligation advice, you can easily get the information you require.

    All you have to do is make a call to us on 0800 689 0500 so you can speak with a professional adviser as quickly as possible. Time is of the essence when you need to find out the likelihood of claiming.
