If you are employed in a factory environment, it is important that you and your colleagues are aware of Health and Safety Regulations. The regulations are in place to protect your well-being and they should always be your employer’s number one priority. If they are negligent in these matters and you are injured as a result, you might want to consider claiming after an accident at work in Hartlepool, or whatever other area of the UK you work in.
Your factory will probably be full of heavy machinery, which could potentially be dangerous if not used correctly. If there is a high level of noise, then you should also make sure to wear ear protectors, so that you do not damage your hearing.
Tinnitus can develop if you are forced to be in a noisy atmosphere for prolonged periods of time. It is characterised by a ringing or buzzing in the ears and can be very distressing.
Some cases of tinnitus are temporary, and your hearing will return to normal within a few hours. However, in more serious cases, the damage can be permanent and treatment is very difficult.
So if you have developed tinnitus, or sustained any kind of injury while you were at work, then you might not need to suffer in silence. In fact, if the injury occurred because your employer was negligent, then you could be entitled to compensation.
