The workplace is where many people spend the vast majority of their days; time they expect to be spent in a safe and secure environment. Unfortunately, there are many ways in which people in all sorts of employment can fall victim to workplace accidents. Equipment can fail, or staff can be exposed to hazardous materials if their employer isn’t stringent enough about their COSHH procedures. Poor safety training is also an issue, as staff who have not been taught how to lift heavy loads correctly strain and injure their backs and knees. Then there’s poor housekeeping that leads to slips, trips, and falls… The list is almost endless.
Industrial disease is also an issue. Long exposure to loud noises without sufficient protection can see workers lose their hearing, and asbestosis can strike those who work in the construction industry years after exposure. Whatever the injury, the consequences can sometimes be life-changing. You may be entitled to have an injury lawyer Bridge of Weir help you claim compensation. That’s where Accident Advice Helpline comes in.
