    Injury Claim in Ullingswick

    Agricultural workers could be entitled to make an injury claim in Ullingswick.

    Ullingswick is a small village in Herefordshire, England. The economy of the local area is largely agricultural. The Health and Safety Executive considers agriculture to have one of the worst fatal accident and occupational ill-health records of any major employment sector. This means if you live or work in the local vicinity then you may need to make an injury claim in Ullingswick.

    Although less than 1.5% of the UK population are employed in agriculture, it is shocking to learn that this type of industry is responsible for between 15 and 20% of fatal accidents at work every year. The HSE further notes that the level of reported major injuries taking place in the agricultural sector is double that of the average for all industries combined. Occupational illnesses are also prevalent at a significant level.

    Employers within the agricultural industry need to be aware of hazards and put in procedures to reduce risk to their employees’ safety. If a worker is injured, or develops an occupational illness, and their employer can be shown to be negligent, then an injury claim Ullingswick can be made. This will allow the employee to receive compensation for their damages.

    The Health and Safety Executive identifies the following most prevalent causes for fatal injuries, non-fatal injuries and occupational illnesses for agricultural workers:

    • Structural factors – How the businesses are run and managed, including the use of contractors and transitory workers.
    • Economic/financial factors – Having enough money to pay due attention to hazard prevention.
    • Technical/technological factors – The extensive use of machinery which needs to maintained and kept safe.
    • Behavioural/cultural factors – Resistance to safety regulations that are legally required, and the desire to stick to traditional methods which may now been deemed unsafe.
    • Environmental factors – Working long hours in all sorts of weather conditions. The unpredictability of livestock.
    • Inadequate training and competency.
    • Poor management – Lack of attention paid to health and safety issues.
