    Accident at Work Compensation in Blaenau Gwent

    Acid burns suffered in a workplace accident

    Some industrial workplaces carry acid as part of their stock for use in the removal of pain or in the production of chemicals that are then sold to customers. Such acid should be treated with extreme care and attention and if you have been burned as a result of someone else’s negligent use of acid then you may be entitled to receive accident at work compensation in Blaenau Gwent. Our team of advisers can help you to quantify the nature of your injuries as well as their long term effects.

    Damage to the skin and nerves through acid

    Most acids can eat through human flesh, nerves and muscles with ease, leaving the victim of an acid accident in constant pain as well as with wounds that will take a great deal of time to heal, only to leave scars in their wake. With this in mind, if you have suffered such injuries whilst using acid – or as a result of someone else using acid – then you may be eligible for accident at work compensation in Blaenau Gwent. The use of acid in the workplace should under normal circumstances be strictly controlled and monitored and only those individuals qualified and trained to do so should be working with it. If you have suffered acid burns because someone who wasn’t qualified was using it you may well be entitled to accident at work compensation in Blaenau Gwent.

    Strict adherence to health and safety and accident at work compensation in Blaenau Gwent

    When using acid in the workplace you should be sticking to the letter of the law when it comes to its uses and there should be very stringent measures in place to govern its use. These rules are there not only to safeguard you but other staff you work alongside. It is also important to understand that your employer should have the correct licences and permits to hold and use acid in the workplace; if no such licences or permits are in place then your employer is operating at great risk to your safety and their livelihood.
