If you operate forklift trucks in one of the many companies that use them in the South Lakeland area, you must have a current forklift operator’s licence. The same goes if you operate forklifts anywhere here in the UK. If during the course of working with a forklift, you are injured and you find yourself needing to raise an injury claim in South Lakeland, you may wish to avail yourself of the online services of Accident Advice Helpline.
The injury victim doesn’t have to be totally blameless
For a compensation claim to be successful, it is important that the blame for the incident or accident that causes the injury should be attributable to a third party; someone other than the injury victim.
Even if the injury victim knowingly operates a forklift without a licence and gets injured in the process, he/she may still be able to claim compensation if the employer did not prevent him/her from operating the vehicle, or have sufficient supervision in attendance to be aware of what was going on and manage the situation.
Providing the correct training applies to all plant and machinery, and all employers. They not only have to make sure that you have been properly trained, they have to also make sure that any plant and machinery is kept in good working order. If something need safety guards, they must be fitted and in good working order too.
These are all basic health and safety measures and failure to comply with them could mean your employer has to face an injury claim in South Lakeland.
