Many thousands of us spend our time working in kitchens day after day, and in doing so expose ourselves to a whole host of potential accidents that could be avoided if (a) the right training was given, (b) the right equipment was used, or (c) a fewer number of hours were worked.
With these things taken into consideration, Accident Advice Helpline and our no win no fee Mayfair colleagues have helped a great number of people to receive compensation. There are a wide ranging mix of accidents that can befall kitchen staff. Here are just a few:
- Burns using ovens, hobs, fryers, etc.;
- Cuts due to knives and other sharp implements;
- Slips and falls due to spillages;
- Scalds sustained through overly hot water; and
- Poor training on the behalf of others working alongside you.
Whatever the reason for the accident, if it has not been your fault and the injuries you sustained occurred within the last three years, you may be entitled to compensation.
Kitchen health and safety is not up to standard
As a general rule, when you are working in or even visiting a busy kitchen there should be a set of standard health and safety procedures in place for everyone. If such health and safety procedures are not in place or ignored, and accidents occur, then it is only reasonable to assume that someone is at fault. This may be negligence on the part of the kitchen manager or head chef, or in the instance of a hotel the manager.
At Accident Advice Helpline, through our no win no fee in Mayfair service, we look to find out why the accident occurred, help you receive a level of compensation commensurate with your injuries, and also to try and ensure that accidents are avoided in future.
Where prevention is always better than cure, injuries sustained as a result of accidents that could have been avoided are all the more unpleasant. Likewise, when working in an environment that can be high pressure and fast moving, it is important to make sure (where possible) that accidents are kept to a minimum for all concerned.
