Injuries caused by working with an industrial oven can indeed be very serious. Some people have sadly lost their lives in this situation, while others have sustained serious industrial oven injuries that have changed their lives. One case related how an industrial oven exploded, although fortunately in this instance everyone nearby escaped without serious injury. It could however, have been very different indeed.
Serious industrial oven injuries can change a person’s life. It may be possible for someone to get a limb caught in an oven door for example, or to suffer severe burns before they are able to escape from the oven. In cases like these there is a good chance that a compensation claim could be paid out in order to help that individual adjust to their life after the accident.
Do health and safety rules ensure such accidents do not happen?
They should do. In the majority of cases where an industrial oven is used in the workplace, a risk assessment is undertaken. This is done to ensure any potential dangers can be highlighted and dealt with, to further reduce the odds of serious industrial oven injuries occurring.
If an accident should occur, health and safety officials will investigate to see how and why it occurred. This will then determine whether there is evidence of negligence that exists to determine if any charges should be made against the people in charge of the business.
How can serious injuries of this kind change lives?
There is the danger here of the injuries being particularly serious, such as if burns occur or if someone loses an arm or hand in the door if it is accidentally closed on them. As you can imagine any case like this will indeed be very serious and have a dramatic outcome for the person concerned. When this happens they may never go back to that job or business again. They may find they cannot work at all. Clearly this will have a profound effect on them regardless of what occurs.
