Types of Accident
If you work as a cleaner then there are various situations in which you could be exposed to potential accident and therefore injury. Our in house injury solicitor in Ottershaw will be able to offer you assistance and help you initiate a claim in the following situations:
Exposure to chemicals
During the course of your work you may be exposed to a wide variety of chemicals. Some of these can have serious health implications if you are exposed to them over long periods of time, for example, they may cause asthma, other breathing difficulties, or even dermatitis.
If you think you are suffering from a condition that may have been caused by exposure to the chemicals you use during you job, then speak to Accident Advice Helpline today to find out if we can help you make a claim against your employer.
An experienced injury solicitor in Ottershaw will know that your employer has a duty of care to ensure that you are wearing personal protective equipment at all times when handling potentially dangerous substances.
A needlestick injury obviously generally occurs within hospital and medical environments where needles and syringes are commonly found. If such items are not disposed of carefully by the medical staff responsible for them, it can place you as a cleaner in danger. Equally, if you have not been provided with the relevant training to perform your job safely, and are injured as a result of not understanding how to handle syringes and needles, you might be able to make a claim against your employer.
