Being a cleaner is not the most glamorous job there is but you may enjoy having a spring clean every day. Cleaners can earn a great income and that can help to provide a comfortable living for you and your family.
The only drawbacks of being a cleaner are the fact you need to work with a large selection of products which can be hazardous. If your employer provides products which are not safe you could make an accident at work compensation in Hillingdon claim.
Hazards For Cleaners
Being a cleaner means you have access to a lot of different cleaning products and machines. If any of these are unsafe or not to standard regulations then your employer could be in very hot water.
All cleaning chemicals you use should be COSHH approved. If they are not you should not be using them because they are unsafe. If you are made to use these chemicals and are then injured as a result you could claim accident at work compensation in Hillingdon.
As well as chemicals your cleaning machines and equipment should also be up to scratch. Electric shocks are not pleasant and can be highly dangerous especially if you have a pacemaker. So if you are shocked by faulty equipment this could also be a claim.
Claiming Accident At Work Compensation In Hillingdon
In order to make a successful claim against your employer you will need to be able to provide some evidence to verify your story. Physical evidence like photographs can be very useful in a case for accident at work compensation in Hillingdon. Pieces such as photographs or training records can be useful and also make it hard for the employer to argue what is in print.
In addition to physical pieces of evidence if there were any witnesses to your accident they may also be beneficial in providing details about the accident which verify your story.
If this scenario sounds familiar you may be entitled to a claim for compensation. Having injuries through no fault of your own is not fair so by making a claim you are standing up for yourself.
