    Compensation for injured food production workers

    Suffered burns after being trapped in an industrial oven? Lost a finger in a meat slicing accident? Suffered a slip, trip or fall at work? Food production workers are working in fast-paced, often dangerous environments, and if health and safety procedures are not followed, there is the risk of accidents occurring which could result in serious injury, even fatalities.

    Injured food production workers may have been injured in any of the following ways:

    • Repetitive strain injury or damage to ligaments/tendons from repetitive work
    • Injured in a factory fire or explosion
    • Burned in an industrial oven or whilst working with equipment reaching high temperatures
    • Struck by a vehicle
    • Slip or trip – for example on a slippery floor or tripping over a box or crate
    • Injured by heavy machinery – this could include losing a limb or suffering crush injuries
    • Lifting injuries such as back pain or shoulder pain, even a hernia
    • Exposed to fumes or toxic substances

    If you have suffered an accident at work, Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim personal injury compensation if somebody else is to blame – such as a fellow employee or your employer.

    Life-changing injuries

    Injured food production workers could find they have sustained life-changing injuries which can seriously impact their quality of life. For instance, if you’ve been burned by an industrial oven, you may suffer from scarring which could affect you psychologically.

    If you’ve lost a limb in an accident at work, you could find you’re unable to return to work and suffer the financial impact, which could affect your whole family.
