    Claiming compensation for a food factory injury

    Injuries at work may be a common occurrence, particularly for those who work in manual jobs which involve a lot of heavy lifting or machinery. This could be in a warehouse, a factory or in the construction industry and training should be given to all employees to reduce the risk of injury.

    Health and safety training is a requirement for all employees and is the responsibility of the employer in order to reduce the risks involved with working in certain environments. Some environments have more potential hazards than others but the aim is to reduce the risks these hazards may have attached to them.

    For example, poor manual handling skills may cause a back injury. It is also the responsibility of the employer to ensure that workplace equipment is regularly checked and that employees are given appropriate clothing to protect them from potential injury.

    If an injury is sustained and it is due to lack of training, poor maintenance of machinery or equipment or a failure to provide protective equipment to employees, then your employer may be liable. If you work in a warehouse or food factory and have suffered a food factory injury that is someone else’s fault, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim.

    Potential injuries in a food factory

    Food factories contain a variety of potential hazards but these can be controlled by making regular checks on equipment and providing personal protective equipment where necessary. Machinery should be regularly maintained to ensure that it is in working condition and no parts are able to come loose, hurting someone in the process.
