    Solicitors in Buckley

    Buckley is a town in Flintshire in North Wales. From the 17th to the 19th century it was a centre for coal mining and pottery-making, although pottery was being made in the area in the 16th century and taken by donkey to Chester market. The town had progressed a lot since then, but one thing that never changes anywhere in the UK, is the fact that no one is immune to an accident that someone else causes.

    Solicitors in Buckley

    Nowadays, if you were injured in an accident at work, for example, you may, with the assistance of a firm of solicitors in Buckley, be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer if you could prove that your accident was not your fault in any way, but that another person’s negligence was responsible. Solicitors in Buckley could also help you if you were diagnosed with an occupational disease.

    Ill health and silica dust

    The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimate that there are around 800 deaths a year from lung cancer, which are caused by long-term exposure to respirable crystalline silica (the fine dust made when stone is cut and so on). Silicosis can also be caused by exposure to this dust over a long period of time. If you work in an environment where there is a possibility of being exposed to silica dust, you should use exhaust-ventilated tools, or ones that have their own water supply, to minimise the health risks when cutting stones, or otherwise working with them. You should also use a mask to prevent inhalation of the dust.

    Masks have different designs and you need one that will perfectly fit your face so that it seals it and thereby offers more protection. You will need to have a face-fitted mask for the best type of protection.

    Your employer should ensure that the HSE’s guidelines are followed regarding the health and safety of workers. An employer has a duty to safeguard employees’ health as well as their safety. Failure to comply with guidelines may leave an employer open to personal injury compensation claims.
