Accident Solicitor Stanton Drew
The village of Stanton Drew is located in the Chew Valley in Somerset, just a stone’s throw from the cities of Bristol and Bath. It is a dormitory village, from which many workers take the 10-minute journey to Bristol International Airport, which is the south west’s largest single-site employer.
While many airport employees will remain safe from harm, it is important to realise that the airport industry is one of the main industries in which workplace accidents have been identified as a significant risk. Even with modernised systems of working, many airport occupations still involve physical and strenuous tasks, which may lead to industrial injuries. Airport runways are also very dangerous and many people working in airports spend time in these hazardous areas.
If you are employed by an airport, your employer must provide you with the chance to take charge of your own health and safety. For example, if you work on a runway, you should be offered high-vis clothing or if you handle baggage, you should be granted the chance to receive training covering the safe lifting of heavy items.
If your employer has not taken action to reduce the risk of airport accidents and you have been injured at an airport, either through handling heavy baggage or while on a busy runway, it is likely that you will be able to claim compensation through an accident solicitor in Stanton Drew.
