    Accident at work compensation in Abergele

    If you work in the retail trade in Abergele and you’ve suffered an injury in the workplace for which someone else is to blame, you may wish to consider employing the no-win, no-fee injury claim services of Accident Advice Helpline. By launching a claim for accident at work compensation in Abergele, you could ensure that you don’t suffer financially as a result of the incident.

    How did your injury occur?

    The retail trade here in the UK is one of its major industries, employing over 3 million people in a variety of shops and stores, ranging from small corner street shops, to chains of major high street stores, department stores and supermarkets.

    While the retail industry isn’t considered to be particularly dangerous in terms of worker health and safety, accidents do happen, particularly in jobs involving manual handling; receiving goods, storing them, and shelf-stacking.

    If you’ve been hurt as a result of this type of incident, you could be eligible to receive accident at work compensation in Abergele.

    Is your workplace safe?

    Manual handling should be avoided wherever possible. There are a number of mechanical aids such as pallet trucks, and forklift trucks that can reduce the amount of manual handling workers have to cope with. All employers have a duty of care towards their employees, and to properly discharge this duty of care, they should ensure that risk assessments are carried out for each manual process their employees have to undertake.

    Using the right lifting techniques

    Part of an employer’s duty of care is to ensure that staff are properly trained, particularly when it comes down to manual handling, lifting heavy and/or bulky loads. The first thing to consider, (and this should be a standard question on any manual handling risk assessment), is whether some sort of mechanical handling aid can be used.

    Where manual handling is unavoidable, (when stacking shelves for example), workers need to rely on their training in order to minimise the risk of sustaining musculoskeletal injuries. This can prevent you from getting hurt and can mean that you fewer people will need to claim accident at work compensation in Abergele.

    Claiming for accident at work compensation in Abergele

    Early detection of aches and pains is important and should be reported to your employer. By doing so you may be able to prevent acquiring an injury. If you do sustain an injury through no fault of your own, you should certainly consider making a compensation claim.
