Do you need to make Inverness personal injury claims after being hurt whilst working in a kitchen?
Due to the popularity of the industry, many people begin working in the food or service industries each year. Although job opportunities can be hard to come by, there are a variety of job roles which involve working in kitchens. Whilst people may begin as working as an assistant or an apprentice, they can often work their way up to the position of sous chef or head chef in time.
Whilst it is possible to suffer injuries whilst cooking at home, the risks of cooking in a restaurant can be increased. As most restaurants use industrial cooking equipment, they are capable of reaching far higher temperatures. In addition to this, if you work in a large restaurant, you may have lots of people working in the kitchen which could mean that injuries are more likely to occur.
In order to ensure that the kitchen is a safe workplace, the facilities must be maintained. Like any electrical items which are used in the workplace, they must be subject to annual PAT testing to ensure that they remain safe.
If this is not done, and the machinery causes someone to suffer an injury, the restaurant owners could be liable and people could make Inverness personal injury claims against them. If you’ve been injured whilst working in a kitchen and the incident wasn’t your fault, you may want to consider making Inverness personal injury claims against your employer.
