    Machinery and factory accidents

    In many factory environments, there are varying numbers of machines that could cause potentially serious work injuries. Those operating this machinery need to be fully trained in correct and safe use. Naturally, the machinery has to be well-maintained. Protective guards, clothing and so on should also be provided when and where needed. Workers should be made aware of and trained with regards to safety procedures.

    Untrained operators and unguarded machinery account for a high percentages of accidents at work involving machinery.  Common injuries at work sustained from this kind of accident include amputations; chemical, electrical or heat burns; lacerations and eye injuries. More often than not such injuries could have been prevented if adequate training and/ or equipment had been provided.

    Potential Factory Accident Claims in the Video

    This clip shows a selection of serious workplace accidents and the resulting injuries. Every one of the workplace injuries shown in this video was the result of safety equipment either not being available or being ignored.

    Assessment of fault – It is not entirely clear from the video whether safety equipment was not provided or simply ignored. If the employers did not provide the necessary equipment to keep their workers safe, they could be held responsible for these work accidents.

    Claim potentials – If the necessary safety gear or adequate training in their use and/ or safety procedures was not provided, each and every one of these individuals receiving injuries by a factory accident could claim for compensation from their employer.
