Working in a factory is hardly regarded as one of the most dangerous jobs you can have. Compared to being a soldier, a tree surgeon or working down a mine, going to work in a factory doesn’t even come close.
However, there are a number of factors which can sometimes mean that working in a factory can often be more dangerous than it should be. Factors such as:
- Heavy machinery
- Lifting heavy items
- Dangerous working conditions
- Forklift trucks
- Large vehicles
Your employer has a responsibility to make sure you are not involved in a factory accident
If you work in a factory or a warehouse, there are many rules and regulations that your employer should adhere to in order to make sure you are not the victim of a factory accident.
Rules such as; ensuring that you are fully trained in using heavy machinery, how to lift heavy items and how to drive a forklift truck. If your company fails in their responsibility and you are injured in a factory accident, you may be able to make a work injury accident claim.Open Claim Calculator
