As we have said kitchens, certainly professional ones, can be dangerous places to work. The environment itself is usually very fast paced, with people rushing around in a multitude of directions trying to prepare various hot meals and beverages for customers in a timely fashion.
As a result of the haste accidents can, and frequently do, happen. This is where the services of an expert solicitor in Helsby can prove useful.
The types of accidents and injuries a solicitor in Helsby can help with include:
Burns and scalds from handling hot meals, boiling water or drinks. Obviously there are also a wide variety of different appliances and utensils that are used within catering environments that can lead to burns and scalds such as pots, pans, kettles, boilers, ovens, grills, fryers and hobs. In all situations appropriate training should be provided on how to use these safely as well as the appropriate personal protection equipment to help limit the chance of injury. If you feel your employer has failed to provide training or PPE then a solicitor in Helsby can help you make a claim for compensation.
Slips and falls can be caused as a result of spillages on the floor which have not been appropriately cleaned. This usually comes down to a management issue in terms of job delegation and training and as such a solicitor in Helsby can help make a claim if an injury has been caused as a result of such a situation.
Lacerations are another common cause for injury in a kitchen due to the sheer number of sharp utensils found within a small and hectic environment.
