Have you received chemical burns at work?
Working with chemicals and noxious substances is a difficult enough job but it can be made harder – and more dangerous – if you have not received the correct training or are working alongside individuals who have received inadequate training.
Accident Advice Helpline and our no win no fee* Membury solicitors can help you receive a level of compensation relative to your injuries if you have sustained injuries at work because of chemicals or dangerous substances.
It is taken as read generally that anyone working with such liquids, gases or other substances, has been trained correctly and their training verified but sometimes these things can be overlooked.
In doing so this represents a failure in the duty of care on the behalf of your employer and anyone responsible for the day to day operations of the company you work for.
Health and safety as well as COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to health) should be adhered to and a failure to do so not only places you at risk but places those around you at risk as well.
