Accidents in a workplace kitchen or canteen and claiming workplace injury compensation in Wiltshire

Over the years, we have helped a great number of individuals claim workplace injury compensation in Wiltshire for accidents that have occurred in such an environment and have left burns and scars as a result.
Accidents in such an environment can occur as a result of using knives and other sharp implements as well as hot stoves and in some instances, can happen because the relevant training was not given or because of issues with the equipment generally. When working in a canteen or kitchen environment it is important to be aware of the dangers inherent with such a job but it is also important that those you work alongside are aware of such risks as well. A failure to understand the dangers of working with sharp implements and hot water, fire etc. can lead to either you or other members of your team being hurt.
