    Compensation for fertiliser industry accidents


    Working in the fertiliser industry can be a dangerous job, with the risk of industrial accidents ever-present. Health and safety regulations protect workers and reduce the risk of accidents occurring, but these are only effective if they are adhered to.

    Failure to stick to health and safety regulations could lead to serious fertiliser industry accidents which could leave employees seriously injured or even be fatal.

    Reporting fertiliser industry accidents to the Health and Safety Executive is a good move, if you’re concerned about health and safety breaches. If you’ve been injured, there’s a chance you could claim personal injury compensation, and you’ll need a personal injury lawyer.

    Accident Advice Helpline has been helping workers in the fertiliser industry claim compensation since 2000, and you could be next. There’s no-obligation to proceed with a claim when you call us, and our personal injury advisors offer confidential advice.

    • Injured by agricultural machinery such as a spreader
    • Killed or injured in a fertiliser explosion or chemical leak
    • Suffering from long-term respiratory ailments or skin conditions linked to working with hazardous chemicals

    It’s your employer’s responsibility to ensure that you have received the necessary training to carry out your job safely, as well as providing you with the personal protective equipment (PPE) you need to work with dangerous materials such as fertiliser.

    Staff should not operate heavy machinery and vehicles such as agricultural spreaders without proper training and supervision, as there is the risk of serious injury or death.

    Negligent employers

    If you believe your employer has been negligent, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation, provided it’s been three years or less since your accident. Trust our experienced personal injury lawyers to get you the compensation you deserve – they work on a 100% no win, no fee basis.

    Call Accident Advice Helpline right now on 0800 689 0500 to find out whether you have a viable claim. Remember there’s no obligation to proceed with a claim, if you change your mind after getting all the facts.
