If you work around machinery, you should have adequate training to operate the machine in question. You should also have proper personal protective equipment (PPE), provided by your employer.
Machinery such as cranes, forklifts or vibrating machinery are inherently dangerous. It’s imperative that you receive the right training before operating them. Similarly, your supervisor should carry out routine checks, to make sure they are safe for use.
If they fail to do this, you may suffer an injury as a result. In many cases, accidents involving machinery can cause serious, life-threatening injuries.This can include loss of limbs, sight, lacerations and burns. If you weren’t to blame for your accident, you shouldn’t be responsible for paying for it.
