Accident Lawyer in Torfaen

Have you had an accident in the kitchen? You might not be surprised, if so – there is so much in a kitchen that can cause you injury. Hot ovens, boiling pans on the hob, and sharp knives all present hazards. Throughout the year, any accident lawyer in Torfaen will deal with a lot of claims for kitchen-related accidents.

Sometimes, the accidents and injuries happen in professional kitchens. Whereas a cut finger in your home kitchen might be annoying and stop you from being able to cook properly for a bit, it’s a different story for a chef or cook – a kitchen is their place of work.

Employers and the law

In any workplace, the employer is obliged to ensure that there is a safe working environment for their employees. A kitchen is no different – a chef shouldn’t expect to suffer injuries on every shift, and while there may be many risks, these must be managed in order to provide safety.

If you work in a kitchen, and you get injured during the course of a shift, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim against your employer – and an accident lawyer in Torfaen could help you with this.

What might happen in a kitchen

Accidents in the kitchen may include the following:

1) Slips and falls. Floors sometimes get wet, because things are spilled on them. When those things are mopped up, the floor remains wet for a while. This is a slip hazard.

2) Scalds and burns. Where there is hot liquid, there’s a risk of being scalded – and hotplates, ovens and hobs can cause burns.

3) Electric shock. If appliances malfunction, they might cause shocks. Make sure everything is PAT-tested.

4) Cuts. Knives need to be sharp in a professional kitchen, so there’s always a risk. Use them carefully. Clear up broken glass immediately, too.
