Here are some examples of a potential workplace accident involving machinery.
- A person employed as a kitchen assistant in a busy commercial kitchen could suffer a workplace accident whilst removing parts of a bacon slicer for cleaning. They may try carrying the blade from one end of the kitchen to another to be cleaned and on the way they could severely cut their hand. They could also drop the blade which could land on their legs or feet and cause a severe laceration. This type of accident may be an employer’s fault because the employer did not provide a suitable blade carrier. Even if the employer did provide a blade carrier, it may still be their fault if they did not train the kitchen assistant to use it correctly. The kitchen assistant may be able to sue for compensation for their injuries and the money that they have lost because they were injured.
- A person employed on a construction site could suffer a workplace accident with a mobile extendable platform. They may lift up the platform and become trapped underneath an overhanging balcony. The employer may be at fault for this if they did not provide sufficient training in how to use the platform correctly or did not use a spotter to detect this type of hazard. There may have been an emergency cut out device that they should have installed.
