With a population of just under 200,000, Aberdeen is the third largest city in Scotland and also known as the Granite City due to many of its buildings being made from that sparkling material. Although the granite quarrying industry has seen its day, Aberdeen is still a busy city with many different industries contributing to the economy. Many of those industries include physical labour such as offshore oil platforms and related oil services, as well as agriculture, warehouse, logistics and factory work.
When people work in busy, physical industries such as these, accidents and injuries are somewhat inevitable. If you have been hurt at work and you feel it may have been your employer’s fault, for example, call Accident Advice Helpline to start your accident at work claim in Aberdeen today.
Is factory work dangerous?
Very few jobs are completely risk-free, but some working environments do come with more danger than others. Factories tend to be busy and loud environments with many moving parts and many staff members going about their work. Add to that the presence of powerful machinery, heavy goods, forklift trucks, possibly dust and other materials in the air and you have the potential for accidents to happen.
It is any employer’s responsibility to make the working environment as safe as can be. When employers fail to do this, accidents are more likely to happen. Perhaps you were going about your job and suffered an injury through no fault of your own? This may have left you unable to work, as well as in serious pain with potentially long-term health problems.
