A lot of people’s jobs require them to operate dangerous machinery for long periods of time. This, however, often comes with a certain level of risk of serious injuries and the fact is that every year a large number of workers get injured at the workplace. In the best case scenario, these machines only cause minor injuries, but these situations are unfortunately rare. If you have been hurt in a machinery accident in St Albans, read on.

The most common injuries
In the majority of cases, dangerous machinery inflicts injuries upon the fingers and hands of workers. These could be caused by a table saw, band saw and many other machines. Eye injuries are also possible when the operator is not wearing safety goggles. These could be caused by particles or items that are being ejected rapidly.
Some people are also injured by dangerous machinery because their necklaces, bracelets or other types of jewellery were caught on moving parts. Many dangerous machines are capable of crushing, cutting or trapping different body parts (usually hands and fingers). But getting pulled by the rapidly rotating part of a machine can also cause severe damage to other parts of the body.
Who is to blame?
In the majority of cases, the employer is to blame for injuries inflicted upon his employees. Even if you were injured because you didn’t wear safety goggles or other protective gear, your employer might be the one to blame if you never received such gear in the first place. This also goes for not receiving proper training for operating the machine.
