Industrial injuries can lead to compensation claims for industrial illness in Hertfordshire. If you feel your injury was not your fault, speak to Accident Advice Helpline. You might be eligible to make a claim.
All employers make sure that all their employees are as safe as they can be while they carry out their job. Some injuries can come on over a period of months or years. The most common of these are long term muscle injuries or sometimes deafness.
Injuries which can be caused by your job
- Using machinery which vibrates can lead to vibration white finger. This is an injury which causes damage to the nerves in your fingers or hand, and is usually caused by excessive vibrations. If you use this type of equipment, your employer can provide safety equipment and you should have lots of breaks as well.
- Repetitive strain injury is more common with the use of computers. Your workstation should be set up correctly to reduce the strain on your wrists to try to prevent this injury.
- If you work where there is a lot of noise, you should be provided with ear defenders, and you should make sure that you use them. Exposure to loud noise over a long period of time can lead to deafness.
