    How you could sustain an industrial injury

    Get some important information today about how you could sustain an industrial injury

    If you’re employed in an industrial job you’re likely to be working in all kinds of environments. You could be using all kinds of machines, electrical equipment, mechanical tools and chemicals etc. Industrial jobs have become more complex and sophisticated over the years. The risk of injury to workers has increased accordingly. There are many ways you could sustain an industrial injury.

    This increase in mechanisation underlines the need for industrial safety to keep workers as safe as possible while they’re at work.

    How you could sustain an industrial injury at work

    There are several ways that you could be injured in an industrial accident. Often these accidents are caused by someone else’s negligence. Unsafe working conditions are one of the biggest causes of industrial injuries.

    Where plant and machinery is defective or not serviced regularly, you could suffer a serious accident. Improperly guarded equipment could lead to amputation of a finger or hand for example. Lack of training in operating plant and machinery is another reason why serious accidents occur.

    Poor ventilation and inadequate lighting might also lead to an accident. Working with chemicals requires high level risk assessments. If you’re not properly protected you could develop burns, breathing difficulties and long-term disability.

    Lack of discipline in the workplace by other members of staff is also how you could sustain an industrial injury. Horseplay, removal of safety devices, failure to use personal protective equipment, distracting behaviour, the list is long.

    Your accident

    If you’ve suffered an industrial injury through no fault of your own then you need some expert legal advice. You may be able to claim compensation for your injuries if you can show someone else was to blame.

    Your accident must have happened within the last three years. This period can be longer if you’re suffering from an industrial disease. Another important consideration is the evidence of your injuries. Medical attention is essential if you want to make a compensation claim.

    If you have other evidence to support your claim, that will also help strengthen your case. For example, you may have reported faulty machinery but nothing has been done to fix it. You may have photos of failures in your workplace such as unguarded machinery. The witness statements of fellow workers will add strength to your claim.
