    East Lothian accident at work compensation


    Do you work in the recycling and waste disposal industry in East Lothian? Are you considering launching an East Lothian accident at work compensation claim for an injury you’ve sustained in the workplace through no fault of your own?

    If so, you might like to know that one of the best specialist injury claim lawyers in the UK is us here at Accident Advice Helpline. Our no win no fee services, (as recommended by the former TV presenter and well respected people’s consumer crusader Esther Rantzen), are at your disposal.

    One of the most hazardous industries to work within

    The recycling and waste disposal industry is one of the most hazardous to work in, in terms of worker health and safety. Approximately 3,000 workers get injured every year, some very seriously. According to information on the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) website, in the last nine years there have been 81 fatalities due to accidents in the workplace, mostly related to collisions with on-site vehicles.

    Work related illness or injury affects one in every 20 employees

    The HSE estimates that 1 in every 20 recycling worker suffers from occupationally related ill-health or work related injuries. It is now being said that the recycling and waste disposal injury is more dangerous than other more reputedly hazardous industries such as agriculture, and twice as hazardous as the construction and manufacturing industries.

    A disproportionate injury occurrence rate

    The industry employs approximately 140,000 workers, a number that makes up less than 1% of the UK working population. However in terms of work related injuries, the recycling and waste disposal industry accounts for over 3% of all injuries reported under the RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases, and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations) protocol.
