Are you entitled to injury compensation?
Papermaking and recycling industries have traditionally suffered from high accident rates. The Paper and Board Industry Advisory Committee (or PABIAC) is striving to reduce the numbers of accidents, and occupational illnesses, for employees of this sector. If you have been injured in the papermaking industry then you could be able to claim injury compensation. Read on to find out more about the risks of the industry, and how a personal injury might be made.
Paper baling and compacting machines.
Baling equipment is typically used in paper conversion and recovered paper industries. A number of injuries have been inflicted on paper baler operators, leading to the need to claim injury compensation. Baling machines are powerful pieces of industrial equipment, with several mechanical moving parts. These have the potential to cause serious or fatal injuries to those operating them. Traditionally these machines are not operated with sufficient hazard prevention measures. The Health and Safety Executive(HSE) has specific advice, guidance and regulations for all employers in paper baling industries.
