    Workplace injury compensation in Tameside


    Alkali burns suffered in the workplace

    If your job is such that you work in a scientific field or work with chemicals then you may work with alkalis that if misused or mishandled could lead to accidents in the workplace involving you and/or your work colleagues.

    Accident Advice Helpline has helped many individuals who have suffered burns because of acids and alkalis in the workplace where incorrect safety procedures were in operation or poor training had played a part in such accidents occurring.

    If you have suffered burns to the skin which has resulted in severe injuries because of alkalis then you may be eligible to receive workplace injury compensation in Tameside.

    Treating alkali burns in the workplace

    When it comes to treating burns caused by the use (or misuse) of alkalis in the workplace then you should be seen to by a registered first aider who will know exactly what to do in order to minimise the risk of serious injury and serious scarring.

    Accident Advice Helpline have helped provide advice and support to numerous accident victims who have suffered burns that were not properly rinsed or cleaned by individuals who were not registered as the company’s first aider or who had failed to renew their first aid training, thus rendering them unable to practice.

    If you have received treatment for alkali or other such burns from an individual whose first aid training is out of date or indeed someone who has never received first aid training then you may be eligible to receive workplace injury compensation in Tameside.

    Recognise the need for proper first aid at work

    If you have suffered injuries at work they should be seen to initially by someone with the correct first aid training. It is not enough to allow someone to look at your injuries if they merely have ‘some idea’ as to the nature of the first aid you need.

    Accident Advice Helpline and their advisers have given advice and support to accident victims where first aid was provided either poorly or by an unqualified individual. As an employer you are allowing an unqualified individual to risk further injury and long term damage to the accident victim if they are able to perform first aid on them unchallenged.
