Preventing occupational injury solicitor Hindhead butchery claims

All of the above potential occupational injury solicitor Hindhead butchery claims could have been prevented by some basic, common sense safety precautions and if an employer has not introduced them then they may be found to be at fault and may have to pay compensation. The types of precautions that could have helped would have been:

  1. Training staff how to lift correctly and train them in safe lifting techniques. Introducing a practice of dividing heavy loads into smaller parts on delivery so that they do not have to be lifted all at once. Where this is not possible a trolley should be provided and used.
  2. Staff should be trained to clean up as they go so that greasy food debris does not end up on the floor. Drip trays can also be very useful. Any leaking machinery or appliances should be identified quickly and the defects remedied.
  3. Cutting machines must be appropriately guarded and must only ever be used according to the manufacturers instructions. Blade carriers should always be used when free blades are being carried around the business. Only staff that are suitably trained should be allowed to use the machinery.
  4. Personal hygiene is the key to preventing infections and so staff should be trained in personal hygiene requirements in a food business. There must also be adequate washing facilities.
  5. Staff training should ensure that all employees know how to use chemicals safely.
