    Compensation for factory head injuries


    A factory floor is never a dull or quiet place to be, particularly not when it is constantly in action over a 24-hour basis. It can also potentially be a dangerous place to be if the proper health and safety rules are not adhered to at all times.

    However, while this can be the case, it is a rarity that any factory would be potentially dangerous for someone to work in. Very few employers underestimate the importance of health and safety matters of any description.

    Many injuries, such as factory head injuries, can be avoided when the proper measures are in place. Often head injuries will occur in one of two ways. For example something might be dropped on someone from a height.

    This can be prevented if the person working at height is safe and there are no means by which anything can fall onto anyone below. In addition head injuries could occur if someone is working in a confined area and there is a chance they could bang their head on something as they move around.

    Preventing factory head injuries

    Prevention is always better than cure, as we all know. This holds true for head injuries as well, and in the case of a factory setting there are numerous ways in which this can happen. For example protective head gear can be worn in situations that have been determined to pose a potential risk in terms of head injuries. Risk assessments should help identify such situations.

    Risk assessments can also highlight the potential risks of working at height. They will ensure the people working at this level are safe, as well as those who may be working underneath. In each case protective helmets can make all the difference, as can cordoned-off areas to prevent anyone from walking underneath if there is a danger of head injuries.

    Have you already suffered an injury?

    Recovering from a head injury can take time. If you’ve suffered a serious head injury you may not be able to go back to the work you did before. This can be upsetting, life-changing and also financially difficult.
