Refuse collectors’ injuries
Not everyone would like to be a refuse collector, but someone has to keep our streets free of rubbish. They might have a collision with another vehicle while driving, or a passenger in a refuse collection lorry as other drivers are sometimes too eager to pass a refuse collection lorry. They could be run over while collecting wheelie bins, or slip, trip or fall while doing their job. Refuse collectors could also suffer from cuts, lacerations or needlestick injuries if their protective clothing is inadequate. We throw sharp items into our bins with no or little thought of the welfare of those who collect our rubbish.
Syringes and sharps should be disposed of in the cases provided and not thrown into rubbish bags or bins unless they are in the protective cases.
Employers have a responsibility to their workers to provide correctly fitting boots and clothing in an attempt to eliminate the risks which their workers are exposed to while they are performing their duties. Employees should wear the protective clothing they have been issued with.
Accident solicitor in Isle of Iona
If you have suffered an injury which was caused by another person’s negligence, then you need to ask an accident solicitor in Isle of Iona or elsewhere, for expert advice. You will have to supply details of the accident or your illness and remember that you must file a personal injury compensation claim within three years of the accident taking place, or within three years of first being diagnosed with a work-related illness. If you have had food poisoning, or another illness of this type, and had medical treatment for it, then the sooner you file your compensation claim the better your chances of winning.
