Common Accidents and Injuries
There are numerous ways in which someone might be injured in an accident that wasn’t their fault while working in a warehouse, and any of these may make you eligible to make a Wellingborough no win no fee compensation claim:
- Trips, Slips, and Falls. These are among the most common accidents in any workplace, especially in a warehouse environment. With packaging, objects, and items which could leak or spill, there are many ways in which this accident might happen, and the injuries can be severe. With the hard floors and other items that may cause further damage if landed on, these injuries can range from bruises, to broken bones and brain and spinal injuries.
- Manual Handling. There are regulations in place in order to limit the amount of handling done by employees in environments such as this. With potentially heavy objects needing to be moved, improper lifting, or trying to lift something that is too heavy, strain injuries can occur within the back, shoulder, arms and legs.
- Falling Objects. Warehouses are usually large buildings which take advantage of high ceilings in order to house more products. Though this may be useful for the business, it is potentially dangerous for the workers. If something were to fall, heavy or not, it could strike someone and cause serious injuries. From bruises, to serious lacerations, broken bones, and head trauma.
- Hazardous Substances. Whatever the warehouse may stock, it’s likely that something there may prove hazardous to health. From a substance leaking from its container, to potential hazards, such as asbestos, being part of the building itself, any could cause skin damage and irritation, to serious illnesses.
Whatever the accident and its resulting injury, it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that everyone in their employ is safe at work. They must not only provide any personal protective equipment that is required to safely do the work, but proper training and minimal exposure to hazardous substances. If this has not been the case then you can make a Wellingborough no win no fee compensation claim to see what our solicitors can do for you.
