Sheffield and stainless steel

During the 19th century, Sheffield was a very innovative place, one of the many new products being produced was stainless steel. Factories sprung up to produce stainless steel and over a short period of time the population increased 10 fold. In 1843 Sheffield was given its municipal charter and became the city of Sheffield in 1893. The name Sheffield derives from the River Sheaf that runs through the city.

In those days, health and safety in factories was unheard of and if you had an accident it was just hard luck – no chance of a free claim Sheffield.

Today a free claim in Sheffield is your right

In factories today, health and safety is a priority, and to make sure employers carry out their duty to protect their staff in the workplace, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) carry out unannounced, periodic checks. If you do have an accident in a factory which results in you being injured you may be entitled to a free claim in Sheffield.

As part of the Factories Act 1833, the first factory inspectors were appointed, their main job being to make sure children were not working too many hours and trying to prevent children being injured in factories. Four inspectors were appointed and they had approximately 3000 factories to look after between them – thankfully it’s a bit different today.
