Inverclyde, a location recognised as one of the thirty two councils in Scotland, is relatively small and is thought to be one of the smallest council areas in the country. The name of the region, and the way it originated is not completely known, yet suggestions are made that the name came from a discussion between Sir John Burns, and those amongst his council. Living in Inverclyde, like anywhere, is not a risk free, and there are numerous ways that workers can have injuries at work.
The risks of working in Inverclyde
This is not something exclusive to only those living in the region of Inverclyde, as workplace risks exist elsewhere. In any case, knowledge of the risks, before they produce accidents, can allow for dangers to be mitigated, and the safety of those working in a workplace, to be increased.
A danger can vary, depending on the workplace you’re working in. A workplace that is not ergonomic for example, can lead to something such as repetitive strain injury. This injury might hurt you, as you’re repeatedly typing on a keyboard, that is not properly positioned. This can hurt you as you’re no longer able to type on a keyboard, or lift heavy items, because it hurts too much.
Yet poor ergonomics are not the only thing that can lead to a form of personal injury. Workplaces where fire is a risk can also lead to a burns injury for example. A workplace that has not been properly updated, in the sense that it has a fire extinguisher for example, to account for the danger of burns and fires, might lead to an injury.
Workplaces must therefore be regularly reviewed, so that you’re able to assess the likely dangers, and know how to prevent them from happening, or at least deal with them when you’re in a dangerous situation, for instance, in the presence of a fire.
If these steps have not been taken, you could very well be the victim of an accident in the workplace that was caused by someone else. This accident might happen because you were not provided with a fire extinguisher for example.
