    Common hazards in the warehouse industry

    There are those who say working in a warehouse is dangerous, and yes, it can have its hazards. But as with any industry, most of the common hazards in the warehouse industry don’t have to cause accidents – it all depends on how seriously you and your employer take health and safety. Hazards are all around us in everyday life, and there may be more in your average warehouse than you’d find in an office. But if you have been injured whilst working in a warehouse, your employer could be held liable for your injuries if there was more they could have done to prevent your accident from happening.

    How have you been injured in a warehouse?

    So what are some of the most common hazards in the warehouse industry? Here are a few examples:

    • Toxic/hazardous chemicals being spilled on skin or causing respiratory problems
    • Heavy loads which could lead to manual handling injuries
    • Being hit by a forklift or other vehicle, leading to crush injuries
    • Objects falling from height from shelves, a truck or a forklift
    • Injured by faulty machinery
    • Repetitive strain injury from carrying out repetitive actions with no break
    • Spillages which could cause a slip
    • Damaged flooring that could lead to a trip or fall

    If you have been injured whilst working in a warehouse, you can make a personal injury claim within three years of your accident, if somebody else is at fault. So if your employer hasn’t provided you with manual handling training and you suffer a back injury whilst lifting, you could make a claim.

    Is claiming personal injury compensation complicated?

    It doesn’t have to be complicated to make a personal injury claim, and it doesn’t have to cost the earth either. Accident Advice Helpline has been helping people make 100% no win, no fee* personal injury claims for more than the past 15 years, and we could help you too.
