Making a Liverpool accident at work claim sometimes happens because of accidents in trades and professions that you would think are quite safe, such as:
- Office workers being over exposed to a photocopier, which can affect their eyesight
- Shop workers slipping on spillages or tripping on obstacles in walkways that should have been kept clear
- Computer workers suffering from injuries caused by constantly using a keyboard
- Cinema workers falling down stairs that are not properly lit
This is just four examples of jobs that you would consider to be safe to work in, but there are hundreds more of them, all with their own particular hazards.
Part of the problem is that if you work in what you know is a dangerous job, you tend to take more care. If you work in an office, for instance, you do not expect to fall over trailing wires or have a load of files fall on you. In fact, you think you are safe and so perhaps are not so aware of the hazards that surround you.
The serious injuries from safe jobs that result in a Liverpool accident at work claim
If we use the examples from above, we can see just how serious injuries can occur in jobs that are considered safe.
- Constantly having to use a photocopier can cause permanent damage to the workers sight
- Slipping or tripping can have awful consequences, largely depending how the victim lands, what they land one and if anything fall on them in the fall.
- Constant use of a keyboard is one of the most common reasons for contract the industrial condition, carpal tunnel syndrome and is referred to by some as typist’s fingers.
- Falling down stairs in any situation can cause terrible injuries, and sometimes kills the victim.
It does not matter how safe you or your employer feel you are, there are health and safety measures that should be complied with for all trades and professions, as well as some that apply to all employers in the UK.
