Being injured whilst working in a food processing factory is no laughing matter – you could suffer serious injuries which impact your life and your ability to do your job. Unfortunately, food industry accidents have the potential to happen in any setting where food is processed and packed, and if you have been injured, you may want to ask yourself, what caused your accident?
Here are a few examples of the types of food industry accidents which could occur:
- Loss of limb after accident with heavy machinery
- Facial or eye injuries from flying debris
- Burns from an industrial oven or hot equipment
- Lifting injuries causing back or shoulder pain
- Injured by a vehicle

Who caused your accident?
Sometimes, accidents happen, and nobody is to blame. But what if you believe your employer is responsible for your accident? If this is actually the case, they could be held liable for your injuries and ordered to pay you personal injury compensation.
Perhaps your employer failed to ensure that health and safety regulations were being followed, or didn’t train you to safely operate dangerous equipment? Both of these are good examples of negligence. You might want to report your workplace accident to the Health and Safety Executive, who may carry out their own investigation, then get in touch with us.
