    Industrial cleaning injury advice


    Call the trained advisors at Accident Advice Helpline if you need industrial cleaning injury advice. They will be happy to give you all the information you require if you need to make a personal injury claim for an accident that was not your fault.

    Industrial cleaning is a job that is full of hazards so it is not surprising that accidents happen. Many of these accidents could have been prevented by the maintenance of high safety standards. If your injury was caused by the negligence of others, you may be entitled to compensation.

    Industrial cleaning accidents

    It would be impossible to list every type of industrial cleaning accident, but there are some common hazards

    Industrial cleaning often involves the use of chemicals. Chemicals can cause burns, skin irritation, eye injuries and can be poisonous if they are inhaled or ingested. It is important that anyone handling these chemicals is trained to do so safely and that the correct safety equipment is provided, such as gloves, goggles and masks.

    Industrial cleaning also involves specialist equipment such as steam cleaners and high pressure water cleaners. Again, training is needed and safety equipment should be provided to avoid accidents. The equipment should be regularly checked to make sure it is in good working order. Injuries caused by equipment can include burns, electric shocks and lacerations.

    As an industrial cleaner, you have to work in a variety of locations and with many different hazards. Every job should be checked for risks and there should always be the correct number of people, tools and safety equipment to enable you to carry out the work safely.

    If your employer does not fulfil their responsibilities to ensure your safety, they may be considered liable in the event of an accident.

    Making a claim

    Accident Advice Helpline is here to help you if you suffer an industrial cleaning accident. Whatever has happened, you have nothing to lose by picking up the phone and calling us. The helpline is free to call and available 24 hours a day. Our trained advisors are always happy to give you no-obligation industrial cleaning injury advice.

    If you suffer an industrial cleaning injury, you should always seek medical advice. If you are exposed to any hazardous materials, you should also be checked out, as the effects may not always be immediate. If you need to make a personal injury claim, medical records of your injury will be needed as evidence.

    Other evidence

    Record as much information about your accident as soon as you feel able. Information should include what you were doing, what equipment you were using and how many other people were with you at the time.

    If there are witnesses, make sure you get their names and contact details. Your lawyer may need to get in touch with them.

    Keep financial records

    The expenses associated with your accident will depend on your injury. Costs often include prescription charges and transport to medical appointments. If you are unable to work, even temporarily, after your accident, you may lose pay. This amount should be recorded as it will form the basis of your compensation package.
