Working in a nightclub can be a busy role, depending on what you’re employed to do. Perhaps you’re a glass collector, collecting empties from the bar and seating areas, or maybe you’re employer as bar staff, serving drinks to customers all night long. You could be a member of the security team a cleaner or even a cloakroom assistant. It’s hardly the most dangerous environment to work in, but when there are crowds of people and alcohol involved, you could be at risk of an accident if health and safety procedures aren’t followed. If you’ve been injured in an accident whilst working in a nightclub, consider calling Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you’re eligible to claim nightclub staff injury compensation. Why should you suffer in silence if your employer is to blame for your accident at work?
How could nightclub staff be injured?
One of the busiest areas in any nightclub is the bar, packed with customers jostling to be served. Drinks can be spilt on the bar and floor, and if spillages are not cleaned up promptly, there is the potential for members of staff and customers to slip and injure themselves. If you slip on a wet floor, you could bang your head on the bar or a table, sustaining a concussion or serious head injury – you could even cut yourself on broken glass on the floor when you fall, and you could claim nightclub staff injury compensation if this has happened to you.
Other common accidents amongst nightclub staff include:
- Trips and falls
- Lacerations from broken glass or bottles
- Facial and eye injuries from faulty kegs or pressurised drinks
- Hearing problems caused by loud music
- Electric shock from faulty audio equipment
- Why should you make a claim?
