Have you been injured whilst working in a factory or warehouse?
Although many companies have now moved their factories offshore, some firms and businesses do still use factories based in the United Kingdom. Whilst much manufacturing work is now completed by machinery, many skilled technicians are still employed to operate this machinery and to carry out any specialist work.
Due to the nature of the role, this type of job can be relatively dangerous. As much of the machinery is automated, it can be difficult to stop it if something goes wrong. If for example, you were to get caught in the machinery, you or your colleagues would need to react quickly in order to try and shut down the machinery before it causes you an injury.
Similarly, in many warehouses across the United Kingdom, operatives are required to use heavy machinery to move goods around. Whilst they should receive training in order to do this, some employers may not provide as much training as necessary which could leave them at risk of injury.
As the rate of online shopping continues to increase, many new warehouses are being opened all over the country. With larger online firms needing thousands of square miles of warehouse space in order to house all of their stock, the boom is creating numerous jobs within the sector.
Whilst the new jobs are welcome, it’s essential that any employees which are taken on are given the relevant and appropriate training in order to reduce the likelihood of injuries and accidents occurring.
