    Wiltshire ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers – what can go wrong with pot washing in catering premises?

    Your Wiltshire ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers may be trying to show that your injuries happened because your employer:

    • Did not provide dishwashers when that would have been the safest method of carrying out the dishwashing/pot washing task. This will be dependent on the size and type of catering premises that you work in
    • Did not provide rollers or conveyors to move the dishes or pots around
    • Did not provide trolleys to move large quantities of dishes around
    • Did not provide cleaning tools with good grips for employees who were required to carry out heavy duty cleaning
    • Did not provide appropriate gloves and non-slip shoes when they would have been appropriate for the particular task
    • Did not provide foot rails or a step to shift body weight and reduce stress on employees’ lower back and legs. This may be required when employees are asked to stand for long periods
    • Did not provide false bottoms in deep sinks to reduce the need for awkward bending at the waist
    • Did not provide water jet sprays when these would have been the safest method of work

    As a general principle, an employer should look at the tasks that the employees are carrying out and then introduce systems of work which would reduce the amount of twisting, bending, stooping, stretching, pushing and pulling that an employee has to carry out. They should also look at changes in working practice which would reduce the number of times it is necessary to do the task. However, that does not mean that the load that is moved each time should be increased.
