Injury Claim in Renfrew

0

Working at height is fraught with danger. When a forklift truck is involved, it can be even more dangerous, especially if a worker stands on the forks of the forklift, and is then lifted up. If you’ve been injured in a fall from height, and it involved a forklift truck, Accident Advice Helpline can help you with registering an injury claim in Renfrew, online.

Hoisting people up on the forks of a forklift truck

Although it should be strictly forbidden under any company’s health and safety policy, workers sometimes allow themselves to be hoisted up on the forks of a forklift truck. It’s usually a practice that is done in order to try and save time. The majority of the time those who use this unsafe practice get away with it. But when something goes wrong, they can be seriously injured.

Forklift trucks should only be driven by licensed operators

All forklift trucks should only ever be driven by a licensed operator, and that licensed operator should be aware that lifting somebody up on the forks is strictly forbidden. Anyone found doing so, and who is reported to the HSE, is likely to lose their licence.

Establishing your rights to injury compensation

Even if you agreed to be hoisted up in such a manner, you may still be entitled to claim compensation if you fall and get injured. The forklift operator should know better.  You can contact us here Accident Advice Helpline, and chat to one of our experienced advisors. You will be advised how best to proceed, and that advice will be given free and without prejudice.

Many workers who get injured in the workplace are reticent about claiming compensation from their employers because they feel that they may be discriminated against thereafter. However, that is rarely the case. All companies that employ staff must have employee liability insurance. It is this insurance that is responsible for paying out any compensation, not the employer.
