If you think you have suffered a lifting injury in Carmarthen whilst at work that could have been prevented, you should seek compensation. You need to contact Accident Advice Helpline today and speak to one of our advisers about how to pursue a claim.
It is a fact that an employer has the responsibility for protecting their employees from injuries in the workplace. This includes doing their utmost to prevent injuries if employees have to lift heavy equipment as part of their job. They should do this by offering training, instructions and the necessary equipment to help with these tasks.
Despite clear guidelines, accidents and injuries involving the lifting of heavy goods continue to be a common occurrence in workplaces across the UK because people have not been trained properly or been put through training at all.
I’ve had a lifting injury in Carmarthen and I want to pursue compensation.
We hear about the same injuries being suffered by people who have to lift heavy items at work, but do so incorrectly because they have not be trained to lift properly. These include hernias, shoulder injuries and damage to the back or neck, which are often very painful and can have a huge impact on a person’s ability to work. This leaves them needing to take time off and then facing a loss of income as a result.
Yet these injuries can be prevented with basic training that an employer should have provided, so people can learn the techniques to lift properly using good posture. In addition, appropriate equipment for lifting problematic loads should be provided.
