    Potential claims for cinema workers

    Every employee has the right to work in a safe environment. If you’ve had an accident at work and you suffered injuries through no fault of your own, you have the right to claim compensation.

    Last year alone, 78,000 work injuries were reported and 27 million working days were lost in the UK in the 12 month period leading up to April 2012.

    Types of work accident: potential claims for cinema workers

    Different jobs carry various risks; factory workers and farmers, for example, are at risk of injuries caused by operating heavy machinery, while office workers have a high risk of suffering from repetitive strain injury and back pain.

    A cinema may be viewed as a safe environment for cinema workers, but there are hidden dangers, which may cause injuries. Possible accidents which may befall cinema workers, include slips, trips and falls, incidents caused by operating catering machinery, and exposure to loud noises which could result in loss of hearing.

    Injuries that may result for cinema workers include:
