    Compensation for leg crush injuries at work


    Compensation for leg crush injuries at work

    Working in construction, factories and warehouses can potentially be hazardous to employees, but if adequate safety measures are in place then the risk of an accident should be minimal. Employees should always follow any instructions or training they have been given in order to protect those around them, as well as themselves. However, employers should always make this training available and should provide suitable equipment for the various jobs being carried out. Working with machinery can be extremely dangerous if the staff are not adequately trained on how to use the equipment safely.

    If there is work being carried out, it should be risk assessed by employers or an appointed member of staff. This means that the potential hazards of the job should be identified and appropriate measures should be taken to control the hazards. This could involve planning the movement of equipment or heavy objects to ensure that they do not fall or hit anyone. The equipment should be assessed in order to ensure that it has been maintained and is fit for use. The staff should also be trained or shown how to carry out the work in a safe manner. Leg crush injuries at work could occur if heavy objects are being moved using unsafe equipment or practices.

    Workplace health and safety negligence

    Workplace safety should be a top priority for employers, no matter what line of work their employees are in. However, it can be extremely important in more hazardous industries such as construction or warehouses. If heavy objects are being handled and moved regularly, the equipment used to do this work should be appropriate and maintained. There should also be appropriate training for all workers. Leg crush injuries at work could occur if machinery is faulty or something falls on top of a worker. If you have suffered an injury at work, you could be entitled to compensation.
