Radcliffe on Trent is a large village in Nottinghamshire, with the “Rad” part of the name being a corruption of red, which refers to the dark red cliffs which were formed by Triassic red shale with gypsum bands running through them. Shale and gypsum both contain silica, and although it is not a health problem when present in the environment it can cause severe health problems if it is continuously inhaled in the workplace. If you work with stone, perhaps as a foundry worker or in the construction industry, you should take precautions as respirable crystalline silica poses dangers to health.
If your employer has neglected their duty to provide all workers with a safe and healthy working environment, you may be seeking workplace injury solicitors in Radcliffe on Trent in order to file a personal injury compensation claim against them. You will have three years from being diagnosed with an illness or disease in which to make a claim.
You may also be looking for a firm of workplace injury solicitors in Radcliffe on Trent in order to make a personal injury compensation claim for injuries sustained in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. You should file a claim as soon as you possibly can, as although you usually have three years in which to claim, some accidents and injuries have a two-year (or less) limit in which to claim for injuries.

Your employer should provide you with the necessary protective gear so that you can do your job with the minimum risk to your health. You should also be given adequate training so that, for example, if you have to manually lift a heavy object, you will know how to do this without injuring your back.
Your employer should also carry out a risk assessment before any new work is carried out. If this is not done and an accident occurs, or if workers become ill, then there is a likelihood that there will be personal injury compensation claims filed against them.
