    North Kesteven accident at work compensation

    Personal Injury Solicitors in North Kesteven

    If you work in the cleaning industry in North Kesteven (an administrative district created by the government in between Nottingham and Lincoln), and you’ve been injured in the workplace, and someone else is to blame, Accident Advice Helpline can give you any help you need to obtain the compensation to which you could be entitled.

    Risk factors within the cleaning industry

    The cleaning industry employs people across all sectors or our economy including the aircraft industry, factories, hospitals, offices, and schools. Although it is not an inherently dangerous sector as such, the cleaning industry nonetheless uses chemicals that can cause respiratory illness, and skin irritation and inflammation, and create circumstances, (such as wet floors), that can lead to slip trip and fall accidents.

    Out of hours, and lone working

    Another significant factor that has to be taken into consideration with the cleaning industry is that work is often carried out late at night, or in the early hours of the morning, when the establishments are closed for business, and many cleaning industry workers often work alone.

    The prevalence of the slip trip and fall accident

    Slips and trips and falls are by far the most common type of accident, not only in the cleaning industry but across the whole of the economy. In the cleaning industry, it is not just the operators themselves who are at risk, but also members of the general public, especially when floor washing operations are being undertaken during normal shopping hours. Operators must take great care to cordon off the area and display clearly visible warning signs to alert the public to any possible slip hazard.

    Cleaning agents contain various chemicals

    Many chemical cleaning products can contain ingredients that can injure your health. There is the risk of dermatitis or some other sorts of skin irritation, and also the risk of fumes from things like bleach, chlorine, and ammonia that is present in many cleaning agents.

    Hospital waste poses a real hazard to the health of cleaning staff

    In the hospital environment, there is additional risk from used needlescutting implements, and dressings. Any one of these hazards, if handled inappropriately, can cause serious injury or illness.
