    Compensation solicitors in Tiverton


    If you don’t like the environment where you work, spare a thought for some of the people who came before and the conditions they had to put up with. However, there are times when employers, for one reason or another, fall down on their commitment to provide a safe and comfortable environment and when that happens it may well be that a claim is appropriate. This page shows you how to find out whether you can make a claim and if so how you can go about finding compensation solicitors in Tiverton who can help you build a case.

    Workplace safety

    The workplace has become a much safer environment to work in over the past century, especially in factories. Back then workers had to contend with machinery such as the Cropper Hopper Spinning Rack which had the unfortunate tendency to occasionally take people’s fingers while spinning the wool. For this reason, many of those who found themselves a digit down were known as ‘coming a Cropper’.

    Back then that was seen as being all part and parcel of the fun of working in a Victorian factory, but it’s safe to say that things are different today.

    Your rights

    If you work in a factory today your employer has to do a number of things to ensure the environment in which you work day to day is as safe as it possibly can be. This extends naturally enough to making sure that all machinery is well maintained and is unlikely to slice off bits of the workforce and also guarding against ongoing conditions.

    One of these could be industrial deafness which is likely to affect you if you’ve worked for a long time in a loud industrial setting. You employer should provide protective equipment such as ear defenders and should also try things such as muffling the sound made by the equipment to reduce the impact on your ears.

    If you think an injury – whether a one off accident or a degenerative condition – has been caused by the place in which you work it is possible that you may have cause to make a complaint. After all, this is the reason they have Employer’s Liability Insurance, to cover them for injuries inflicted on their staff. It is this insurance policy that you will most likely be claiming against.
