If you have been injured whilst carrying out the duties of your job, you may be looking for an experienced lawyer to help you pursue a product tester accident claim. The skilled advisors at Accident Advice Helpline are here to help you.
Working as a product tester
Working as a product tester sounds quite unusual and there are a number of sectors in which you might have worked:
- Government role – working to develop and maintain the strictest standards, with the goal of reducing hazard to the public and specialists.
- Industry role – working to achieve certification of products, or testing the safety compliance of products.
- Consumer organisation role – working for an independent organisation, or a publication, reviewing the practices of different businesses.
This last role is the one that most people will be familiar with. It includes such jobs as a mystery shopper.
Despite the name, mystery shoppers do not just shop. They visit all sorts of businesses and check that the businesses are adhering to both internal and external policies. For example, they visit shops to ensure that staff members are not selling age-restricted items to people without identification. Alternatively, they might visit restaurants to check that the waiters and baristas are following the service guidelines laid down by the head office.
What many people do not realise is that working in this industry can put product testers and mystery shoppers at risk of accident and injury.
You might have been working in a coffee shop, and slipped on spilled coffee that had not been properly cleared up. You might have been assessing a supermarket when a poorly stacked display of canned goods fell on you. You might even have been monitoring flight attendant performance and received an injury at an airport or on an aeroplane.
However your injury occurred, chances are that, as a mystery shopper, you are self-employed and any injury that leaves you out of work means that you do not get paid. If this is the case, then you might want to pursue a product tester accident claim.
