If you work in an industrial environment such as a factory, you may work around things such as chemicals and hot surfaces on a daily basis.
But what happens if you suffer a burn or scald in workplace accidents in West Devon?
Your employer is responsible for ensuring your health and safety while you are at work. While accidents are sometimes and unavoidable part of life, in some cases, these accidents could have in fact been avoided had the employer adhered to the legislation in place to protect workers.

Take action after workplace accidents in West Devon
Burns and scalds are serious injuries, and you shouldn’t just accept having to live with them.
Flame or chemicals (dry heat) cause burns, while scalds are caused by boiling liquids. Burns are classified by severity, broken down into three major categories. Depending on whether you have suffered first, second or third degree burns, you could be facing any number of painful side effects from inflammation and blistering on the skin, right down to permanent nerve damage and scarring. Returning to work after suffering such an accident can be difficult, and in some cases impossible, and if someone else’s negligent actions have caused you to suffer not just the physical injury but a loss of income as well, don’t just settle for living with it.
