Are you claiming Methil compensation after a work related injury?
Although some jobs may be more dangerous than others, most people don’t consider jobs in the food industry to be particularly dangerous. Whilst they may not be the most hazardous jobs, injuries can easily occur when you work in the food service industry. If, for example, you’re a chef or you work in a kitchen, you could easily suffer a burn or cut yourself with a sharp knife.
One particularly dangerous role in the food service industry is that of a butcher. If you work as a butcher, or even as an assistant in a butcher’s shop, you may need to use sharp carving knives and cleavers on a regularly basis.
Although people are trained to use these tools prior to working with customers, accidents can still happen at any time. In addition to using these handheld tools, butchers may also need to use electrical equipment to carry out some of their work. If this was to malfunction or it was used improperly, it could cause a serious accident due to the sharpness of the blades and the power of the electric motors.
Just like in other jobs, if you’re hurt whilst working in a butchers shop, you could potentially make a claim for Methil compensation, if you weren’t at fault. If your employer was responsible for the accident, they may be forced to pay you Methil compensation for your injuries.
Unfortunately, many people are hesitant about making a claim against an employer as they think that they will lose their job as a result. Fortunately, there is protection in place for employees so if you make a genuine claim against an employer, they won’t be able to penalise you.
