Have you been hurt by dangerous machinery?
Working around dangerous or defective machinery poses a number of threats, which is why your employer is responsible for providing adequate safety training and ensuring that all machinery is safe for use.
Pneumatic drills, forklifts and other machinery is supposed to undergo routine inspection to reduce the risk of dangerous malfunctions. Eye injuries, lacerations, amputations and other serious injuries can occur when unsafe machinery is used in the workplace. If you work in a factory around machinery on a daily basis, you have a right to feel safe and return home from work uninjured.
If you have been hurt at work because of faulty or unsafe machinery, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim, and bring a case against your employer. For example, if you have proof that your employer knew that the machine in question was unfit for purpose and yet did nothing to fix it or stop employees from using it, they can be held liable and made to pay a sum in compensation for your injuries.
