Common accidents at work
Apart from the most common slips, trips and falls, there is also a wide variety of other accidents that workers often suffer. Many people who are exposed to chemicals for example, face the risk of burns. This can happen in all kinds of factories and labs. A lot of people are also exposed to risks of back injuries. These usually affect people whose jobs involve heavy lifting.
Some workers are at risk of lacerations which can be caused by a machine with moving parts or a table saw, for example. People who work at a computer for long periods of time are also facing the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome which is a repetitive strain injury (RSI). The worst thing is that such conditions are often not taken seriously by employers and employees alike. Workers who are regularly exposed to loud noises are at risk of suffering hearing loss.
How to prevent injuries
The majority of accidents at work can be prevented if employers take the risks seriously and implement the necessary safety measures in the work process. One of the easiest things any employer can do is to give employees the safety equipment they need in order to minimise the risks. This includes harnesses, safety goggles, earmuffs etc.
Another thing employers should always do is make sure that their employees are trained to do the jobs they have been assigned to do in a safe manner. This could cover anything from heavy lifting techniques to training for safely operating forklift trucks and other types of machinery. Keep in mind that if your employer was the reason why you had an accident at work, you can make a claim with the help of our solicitors for Stadhampton.
