What sort of Maesteg accident at work compensation claims can Accident Advice Helpline assist with?
Maesteg used to be a hub of manufacturing and engineering activity. Coal mining, iron and steel production, cosmetics and vehicle manufacture were all key industries, and big employers. Sadly none of them any longer exist today, and Maesteg is now mostly residential, with many of the working age population having to commute to and from nearby Port Talbot, Bridgend, and Cardiff.
The biggest employer now in Maesteg is the retail sector, so unsurprisingly it’s this sector that spawns most of the Maesteg accident at work compensation claims that Accident Advice Helpline are called upon to help with.
Retail transport hazards
One of the biggest concerns regarding health and safety in the retail sector is workplace transport. Without diligent managing, it can prove hazardous, and be a source of many serious injuries, not only from an employee’s point of view, but in terms of the general public too.
The first thing to consider (and this applies to both members of the general public and workers in the retail sector) is the route that traffic takes; especially when that route is shared by retail sector workers and the public.
Special care must be taken to ensure that driving surfaces are in good condition, and that appropriate speed limits are put in place. It’s also important to try and ensure that reversing (especially by retail sector traffic) is avoided.
If you work in the retail industry and you’ve been injured in a collision accident with an on-site vehicle, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to launch a Maesteg accident at work compensation claim to obtain appropriate recompense. Remember that the blame for the accident that caused the injury must be attributable to someone other than yourself, and that the incident must have taken place within the three years immediately preceding the date of your claim.
