    Lawyer in Nelson Dock


    Most people have heard of the River Mersey, which runs past Liverpool and many other areas. However, unless you know Liverpool well, you may not have heard of Nelson Dock. This is a dock included in the Port of Liverpool, and it is part of the River Mersey itself. It has a long history, having been unveiled in 1848. Many people work in and around this area, but there is little need for anyone to have cause to find a lawyer in Nelson Dock.

    Why is this? Purely because health and safety in the area is exceptionally good indeed. This can be a potentially dangerous line of work if risk assessments are not done, as possible hazards can lie in various places.

    What are the potential dangers in dock work?

    Various forms of transport and lifting equipment are likely to be used on a regular basis in this instance. Those using vehicles or lifting equipment should be trained in how to do so safely, without risk of injury to themselves or others. Additionally, some manual handling may also be involved, which could also in turn lead to injuries that may occur and become apparent over a longer period of time.

    Other possible hazards may include excessive noise and dust, and working in confined spaces. Risk assessments must be undertaken for all these types of hazards, so as to identify appropriate solutions in order to keep workers safe.

    What should you do if you work in a dock and you have been hurt?

    Report it to your boss to begin with, as it should be noted in the accident book. Furthermore, more serious injuries must be reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Your employer will take care of this if need be. You must receive medical help and advice if required, although this may not be necessary if the injury is very minor. It is usually best to get checked out.
