Have you sustained a workshop injury? Unsure if you can claim? Consult the expert injury solicitors in Eastville about making a personal injury claim!
By their nature, workshops are busy, noisy and fast moving environments. Heavy machinery, moving vehicles and industrial pollutants make the workshop a potentially hazardous and dangerous environment to work in.
If you, or a fellow colleague, have sustained an injury through an accident that wasn’t your fault, whilst working in a workshop environment, then you may be legally entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim for your injuries.
Are you safe?
Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) is defined as safety equipment that the worker can wear, in order to reduce or remove the potential risks to their health and safety whilst working.
This Personal Protection Equipment kit may consist of:
- Overalls which are fire retardant
- Steel toe capped safety industrial boots
- Disposable latex gloves
However, wearing Personal Protection Equipment should only be considered as the last part of the health and safety considerations in the workshop environment. Workers cannot rely on wearing this safety equipment to prevent becoming injured. The environment has to be made safe and comply with the relevant health and safety guidelines as stipulated by the Health and Safety Executive.
