Accident at work compensation in Bassetlaw


If you work in electrical maintenance, and you have to visit either domestic and/or commercial sites to carry out your work, and you suffer an electrical injury in the process, you might want to launch a claim for accident at work compensation in Bassetlaw, if indeed that’s where you sustained your injury. Accident Advice Helpline employs over 200 specialist injury claim lawyers, and electric shock injuries are something we know a great deal about.

The risk of electric shock injury when maintaining electrical apparatus

The biggest danger electrical workers are exposed to when carrying out testing is the possibility of receiving an electric shock. If you accidentally touch a live conductor carrying a dangerous voltage, and part of your body is connected to earth, you will get an electric shock. You could also receive burn injuries.

Other factors that exacerbate injury

Depending on the size of the electric shock you receive, the resulting injuries can be serious and even fatal. It’s not just the electric shock itself causes injury either. Injuries are often caused by other unwittingly touching or falling into another hazard, such as exposed moving componentry of factory equipment, or a pan of boiling water.

Carrying out remote on-site risk assessments

As with any other sort of work, it is advisable to carry out risk assessments before undertaking the task. Risk assessments entail a study of the work area and the methodology to be used, and this helps to focus minds on identifying any possible hazards that may be encountered during the maintenance and/or repair process. This is particularly important when working on remote sites because it will help to identify any potential anomalies or variations that do not conform to electrical best practice.
