Some garden jobs are more involved than others. If you work as a landscaper or as part of a gardening company you will know this first-hand. If someone wants a completely new look for their garden you can use a rotavator to lift soil and turn it over far more quickly than you can do by hand. This can help you prepare for laying new turf for example, or even to dig out new flower beds.
It should go without saying that safety should always come first when using a rotavator. You must make sure you know how to use it properly. Your boss should provide appropriate training to make sure this is the case. They also have a duty of care to make sure the rotavators they have to hand are regularly maintained so they do not pose any potential danger to you or to anyone else.
Can accidents be reduced?
Yes – by following the suggestions given above there is every chance that accidents involving rotavators will be quite rare. However, in rare circumstances there are incidents where people do not manage to avoid having an accident.
In this situation it is important to know exactly what happened, especially if you are thinking of trying to claim rotavator injury compensation. If you have a lawyer to help you make such a claim, they will want to know everything about the situation and how it occurred. Most important of all, they will want to work out whether your boss was negligent in providing you with a rotavator that was not fit for purpose. They may also have neglected to provide you with training or proper protective gear. All these elements will be looked at and borne in mind.
