Even the first census of 1801 divided the population of Bewcastle into those ‘chiefly employed in agriculture,’ those ‘chiefly employed in trade, manufacturers or handicraft’ and others. Two centuries later, not a lot has changed in this field. Agriculture is still one of the most dangerous areas to work, according to the latest figures released by the Health and Safety Executive in 2013. Although fatal accidents in farming have come down over the past 15 years, the rate is still well above any other industry. Talk to us today if you’ve been wondering how to get legal help in Bewcastle.
The most common types of injuries seen by a injury lawyer in Bewcastle in agriculture are a result of contact with moving machinery, injury from moving vehicles and animals. Workplace health and safety figures demonstrate that the agricultural industry has maintained improvements to health and safety standards in the last 12 months, but there is still much to do to reduce deaths and serious injuries. By law, employers must take responsibility for the health and safety of their employees. There are numerous laws and regulations in place to make sure that they do this. However, on occasion they do not satisfy this obligation. When this results in an injury, employees have a legal right to make a claim for industrial injury compensation.
