    Accident at work in Suffolk Coastal


     

    Every successful business needs to have a fully operational warehouse. Without this function there would be no professional system in which to export and deliver goods to customers and clients.

    In a demanding atmosphere where goods are constantly on the move all employees in a warehouse need to have the proper training in order to fulfil their job role properly. Including job role basics and health and safety modules the induction training should be enough to prevent an accident at work in Suffolk Coastal.

    Warehouse hazards

    With high racks of shelving and piles of loaded pallets there is a lot of heavy material which on its own could deal a lot of damage to either an item or a person. Being trained to manoeuvre heavy materials properly means that the risk of an accident at work in Suffolk Coastal is minimised.

    However even if the training is completed satisfactorily and all subjects are covered accidents could still happen if employers are negligent toward standards or refresher training. Any new procedures or new equipment must be accompanied by the associated training module so that all staff members are comfortable and safe when putting it into operation.

    Negligence in warehouses and an accident at work in Suffolk Coastal

    Negligence can come from any individual within the warehouse. Although on many occasions the negligence comes from above in the management levels, on some occasions it can be colleagues.

    Having colleagues who are careless in their work can endanger all employers and employees alike.  With so many heavy materials and machinery onsite the injuries possible for an accident in a warehouse can be severe.

    In warehouses there is usually an CCTV system which can record the accident which takes place.  This recording can then be used as evidence in the compensation claim for the accident at work in Suffolk Coastal.

    Having an accident at work is nothing to be ashamed of, you may be surprised how many people come to your aid.  Though they may not be able to do much, they are still there to support you and can assist your compensation claim by submitting eye witness accounts to your solicitor or lawyer.

    Accident Advice Helpline can help you in making a start on your claim for compensation.  We have a team of advisers who can answer any of your questions.  Call us on 0800 689 0500.
