Accident Advice Helpline – One of the top ‘no win, no fee’ Eltham workplace accident injury claim lawyers
Injuries in the workplace happen all of the time. Employing the services of a good ‘no win, no fee’ Eltham injury claim specialist to help you to claim compensation if the accident, or circumstances that causes injury can be attributed to a third party, is simple. Yet, in reality, only 7/10 people actually claim the damages to which they are rightfully entitled.
The dangers of exposed blades
One of the most frequent causes of injuries in factories are cutting machines. Wherever there is a naked blade, there is always a risk of injury, even to experienced operators. All it takes is for the material that is being cut to move unexpectedly, and in an instant, the hand holding the material comes into contact with the blade. Fingers, and even whole hands can be severed in the fraction of the second. There is also the possibility of someone tripping on an object left on the floor and falling onto the blade and causing severe injury. If a blade is left exposed, then the employer has not fulfilled their duty of care to the employee.
Moving machinery parts must be guarded
Any machine that has exposed moving parts poses a hazard. Items of clothing can become entangled and drag the operator into the machinery, causing personal injury and in extreme cases, even death. Moving machinery parts must therefore be properly guarded.
