Solicitors in Lossiemouth are occasionally asked by locals who work around aircraft to help them to launch a claim for compensation in respect of injuries they’ve sustained in the workplace.
The typical types of Injuries that happen when working around both civil and military aircraft
The typical injuries that civilians sustain include things like:
- Manual handling injuries
- Slips, trips, and falls
- RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury)
- Collisions with on-site vehicles
- Industrial deafness
It’s not just civilian employees that are at risk
The same sorts of injuries can happen to military personnel too, and although they’re probably not encouraged by the military to seek outside help for compensation, it’s still their right to do so if they so desire.
The positive and negative sides of wearing ear defenders
Anybody working in close proximity to aircraft noise, whether it’s civil or military aircraft, must obviously be issued with good quality ear defenders to help protect their hearing. This can be something of a double-edged weapon in as much as on the positive side, good quality PPE will drown out engine noise, but on the negative side it will also filter out any other external noises too. So shouts of warning from colleagues, or vehicle klaxons won’t get heard either.
The crucial importance of carrying out risk assessments
It’s therefore important for any employer to carry out risk assessments to identify any possible risks and hazards and to mitigate them accordingly. For example, in areas where it’s necessary to wear ear defenders, traffic should be diverted. Any other potentially dangerous operations that may give rise to spontaneous hazards that shouts of others might ordinarily warn them about, must be avoided too.
