Have you been hurt at work in Wellingborough?
If you work in a warehouse then you will no doubt already be aware that there is always the potential risk for you to be injured whilst at work. With so many different hazards around the work place it can be difficult to avoid injury in certain situations. This is especially true if your employers do not do all they can to ensure that the work environment is as safe as possible, or that you have been provided with the necessary training to ensure that you can do all you can to keep yourself safe.
If you have been injured in an accident that you do not think was your fault, then you can always make a Wellingborough no win no fee* compensation claim with Accident Advice Helpline. We will do all we can, with the help of our solicitors, to secure you the compensation that you are entitled to after being hurt at work in Wellingborough.
Types of accidents caused by improper training
There are various ways warehouse workers can be injured if they have not received the proper training to do their job. Where lack of training has led to an accident and ultimately an injury then a Wellingborough no win no fee* compensation claim can be made against the employers.
One of the most common types of accidents involving warehouse and factory work involves the use of machinery and equipment. In order to use a piece of machinery safely you have to be appropriately trained. You should also be made aware of the potential risks associated with the job you are doing, and given the right personal protection equipment to help reduce the risk of injury.
Where employers fail to do this adequately they can be seen to have failed in their duty of care towards their employees and a Wellingborough no win no fee* compensation claim can be made.
Training is also important when it comes to handling hazardous materials. In warehouses you may be responsible for moving or working with any number of different hazardous materials. Operatives should know how to store them and transport them safely, and again when to use the right personal protective equipment to reduce the risk of injury. Many diseases, as well as injuries, can be caused if the wrong training has been provided and these can have disastrous consequences for staff members.
