As with all equipment necessary for doing your job, if you work in a kitchen you are expected to have received a level of training that allows you and those around you to be safe while kitchen equipment is in use. Although you may feel that you have received the right level of training, particularly if you have never used the equipment in question before, you may have received inadequate or poor training.
Therein lies the issue when accidents occur with machinery, where cuts, burns, scalds and lacerations can easily happen. Accident Advice Helpline and our no win no fee Mayfield lawyers can help if you have sustained injuries because of poor or inadequate training. Every year, thousands of kitchen staff are injured because they are required to use equipment for which they have failed to receive correct training. This is not necessarily their fault, as they can only go on the basis of the training they are given to ensure a level of competency.
My lack of training has left me injured
This is something with which we here at Accident Advice Helpline, in conjunction with our no win no fee solicitors, are asked to assist on a regular basis. Not only does working in a busy kitchen require a Food Hygiene Certificate, but it also requires that you and those around you are able to use the equipment with which you come into contact on a daily basis to an acceptable level. If this equipment has left you with injuries that are preventing you from working, or have left you scarred, then your training might have been such that there have been gaps in it.
Consider, for example, using cutting equipment or cooking equipment where high temperatures are involved. A failure to train you and your colleagues properly may result in unnecessary, painful and sometimes debilitating injuries. It is one thing to sustain such injuries in your own kitchen, where you are responsible for your own actions, but if you receive them in a kitchen where strict health and safety regulations should operate then there are clearly issues that need resolving.
Again, making a no win no fee in Mayfield claim for compensation is not just about money, but is also designed to ensure such accidents don’t occur again.
