    Introduction to slips trips and falls


    When it comes to factory accidents at work, there are a number of different aspects you must take into consideration. Firstly, due to forklift trucks that are operated within a warehouse related environment, there are more and more work accident claims.

    This is thanks to a host of factors such as forklift drivers not taking care as well as driving at excessive speeds and even hazardous spills and leakages. The latter point leads to many factory work accidents caused by slips, trips and falls in the workplace.

    This is especially the case when an individual slips on a dangerous floor which might not have been cleaned properly or contains fluid that has leaked onto the surface.

    Common factory accidents

    Some of the most common factory work accident claims involve some of the following situations;

    • Forklift trucks impaling individuals in a warehouse.
    • Body parts becoming trapped under heavy machinery including forklift trucks.
    • Heavy objects falling off shelves from a height.
    • Trips and falls on a surface that may contain dangerous chemicals or leaky fluid.

    Forklift truck risks

    It cannot be denied that slips, trips and falls in a factory are an element you have to take into account, especially around heavy machinery. This is because forklift trucks are considered to be a particular risk in the factory.

    Not only are they large vehicles that you can become trapped under but their sharp metal components could become a real threat. In this way, the dangers in a warehouse are clearly evident.

    Probable claims in the image

    In a fast paced environment, forklift trucks and liquid-based products pose greater threats resulting in accidents. For example in this image, we can clearly see the surface of the floor appears wet and dangerous.

    We can view a worker who is carrying several heavy boxes. However he could certainly slip and fall whilst possibly receiving an injury from a fractured collar bone to a broken arm.

    Claim opportunity

    In this case, if the individual is able to prove that they tripped because of a dangerous surface or fluids that may have leaked onto the flooring there may be a chance to claim.

    If you have had a factory slip that was not your fault then Accident Advice Helping could assist in your compensation claim.
