Manual Handling accidents

Manual handling accidents are one of the most common as they might occur on almost all work premises. They don’t just happen on construction sites, farms or warehouses. You might be asked to lift, push or pull an object and then you could suffer a back injury or an injury to a limb. You should receive proper training from your employer so that you can handle heavy objects safely. Employers have a responsibility to limit the amount of manual handling that needs to be done. Machines can be used for lifting and should be, to minimize the risks to employees.

An employee also has responsibilities under the Health and Safety at Work regulations. These include:-

  • Cooperating fully with their employer on all Health and Safety matters.
  • Following all Health and Safety guidelines provided to them by their employer.
  • Notifying their union representative and/or their employer of any dangerous manual handling practices they see being carried out.
  • Using all the safety equipment and protective clothing their employer provides them with.
  • Paying attention to the results their actions could have on colleagues.

Accident solicitor in Beyton

The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) statistics show that manual handling accidents account for more than a third of all accidents which are reported to them. These result in employees being off work for more than three days and the HSE point out that sadly not all accidents are reported to them. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (amended in 2002) were put in place to protect employees from having such accidents. Failure to comply fully with these could leave your employer open to a negligence claim if you have an manual handling accident at work.

You will need to find an accident solicitor in Beyton or one elsewhere, who has experience of handling such claims. Not all accident solicitors have the expertise to deal with all types of accident or injury, so you need to find one who has the experience you need.
