Working in an environment with lots of heavy machinery can be a very demanding way to earn a crust. Not only can it be physically demanding, it can also require a great deal of concentration to make sure that you’re using the equipment around you responsibly and are not putting you and others at risk of being injured. Then there’s the noise; factories, waste recycling plants and the like are particularly noisy places.
However, people who work in these types of settings now are much better protected than they used to be from a health and safety standpoint. In the past, workers who were injured in workplace accidents in places of business such as these would have very few rights if they were hurt in an accident that was not their fault.
Now, if a worker who earns a living in environments such as these were to suffer an injury in an accident that was not his or her fault, there will be a chance that they might be able to take some form of personal injury action with the help and advice of a decent 100% no-win, no-fee St Helens law firm.
Factory accidents and a St Helens law firm
It is of the utmost importance that heavy machinery is kept in a good state of repair at all times. If a problem is noticed on an item of heavy machinery that could pose a risk of doing a worker an injury in an accident that was not their fault, such as a broken safety guard, the machine in question should be taken out of action until it is repaired and safe to use again.
Unfortunately though, some companies will often consider their bottom line over and above the safety of their workers. If you were to be injured by a piece of faulty machinery, there will be a chance that you might be in a position to hire a St Helens law firm with a view to seeking a compensation pay-out.
Imagine that you were using a piece of machinery and your hand got crushed by moving parts that were supposed to be protected by a safety guard that had been damaged. Under these circumstances, it would be only right that you could pursue recompense if you were hurt.
