    Cleaning Accidents

    You may be forgiven for thinking that being a cleaner is not a terribly dangerous job, and for the most part you would probably be right.

    However, there are certain accepted risks associated with being a cleaner such as:

    • Injuries caused by manual handling accidents – these often result from having to  move large pieces of equipment such as hoovers or floor polishers.  You may even be required to move furniture in order to clean an area or office effectively.  If this is the case then your employer should ensure that you have received the proper training on how to effectively move such objects, or that you are provided with the right support to do so.  If they have failed to do this and you are injured as a result then a solicitor in Henley may be able to argue that they should be held accountable for your injuries, and thus enable you to make a claim for compensation against them.
    • Industrial diseases caused by exposure to chemicals or dangerous substances – many cleaners are required to use a wide variety of chemical substances in order to clean.  It is the responsibility of an employer to ensure that COSHH regulations are adhered to and that the necessary training and personal protection equipment is provided to minimise harm. Exposure to such chemicals can cause diseases such as asthma and dermatitis. Cleaners may also be exposed to asbestos which can in later life lead to the development of asbestos related diseases such as asbestosis, pleural plaques and lung cancers.
    • Needle stick injuries – while these are stereotypically associated with working in medical settings, cleaners in parks and various other areas such as subways and car parks can also be exposed to the dangers these objects present.  A solicitor in Henley can help make a case against an employer who has failed to provide the necessary PPE or training to mitigate against the risks associated with these.
