    Factory closes after worker sustains life-changing arm injury

    By David Brown on September 16, 2014

    The McCain factory in Whittlesey closed for almost a week after a worker sustained a life-changing arm injury. The worker, in his 30s, was working at the factory on August 21st when his arm became trapped in machinery. He lost a significant amount of blood and was air-lifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital for further treatment.

    The factory was closed whilst an internal investigation into the accident took place. Whilst production at the plant has now resumed, with an emphasis on reinforcing health and safety procedures, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are conducting their own investigation into the incident, which could take months to complete. It is important that they find out whether a breach of health and safety legislation was responsible for the man’s accident and subsequent life-changing arm injury.

    If the HSE discover that McCain breached health and safety legislation, the man in question could be eligible to claim compensation for his injuries, pain and suffering. If you have been injured in an accident at work, you could report it to the HSE, who will normally carry out an independent investigation if they feel the situation warrants it.

    Have you been injured at work?

    We all know that accidents can happen on construction sites, in warehouses and other industrial environments such as factories, but did you ever stop to think that an accident could easily happen at your work? In fact, accidents have the potential to happen in any workplace, at any time. The good news is that if you’ve been injured at work, and your employer didn’t meet their responsibilities to keep you safe at work, you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
