South Tyneside has been long known for its industry, and despite the decline in the latter part of the 20th century, the area still has a rich industrial presence through maritime repairs and offshore services, engineering and manufacture of various products from furniture to electronics.
Industrial workplaces are among the most dangerous, with so many hazards all around, and with improper attention paid to ensuring the industrial workplace is a safe environment for all staff, devastating accidents can easily occur.
In 2012/13, the North East of England alone reported 5% of all British work-related injuries at 3,452.
In the previous year in 2011/12 56,000 people in the North East suffered a work-related illness.
The employer needs to take responsibility for workplace safety, but it’s the victims who suffer long after a South Tyneside accident at work as they try and piece their lives back together.
