Working in a factory can be a dangerous job. Accidents can happen easily and quickly, and they can often be serious.
Every year, thousands of people are injured while working in manufacturing settings. While some of these accidents are due to negligence on the part of the employer, many are simply the result of inexperience or inadequate training.
In either case, if you’ve been injured in a factory, you may be wondering if you have a case for compensation.
The first thing you should do is speak to a solicitor. They will be able to assess your case and determine whether or not you have a valid claim.
There are a few things that they will take into account, such as the severity of your injuries, the circumstances of the accident, and whether or not the accident was caused by negligence on the part of the factory owner.
There are a variety of injuries that can occur in a factory or manufacturing setting. Some of the most common include slips, trips and falls; being hit by falling objects; and being caught or crushed by machinery.
Injuries can also occur from exposure to hazardous chemicals or materials, or from repetitive motion.
While some factory injuries are minor and require only first aid, others can be more serious, resulting in lost time at work, permanent disability, or even death.
According to HSE ( health and safety executive ) The number of workers who have been injured or become ill at work continues to rise, with an estimated 88 thousand cases across Great Britain in 2021. Of these 38 percent were due new injuries and 43% had long standing illnesses.
The rate of non-fatal injuries sustained by 57,000 workers each year on average across the three years 2018/19 – 2020 /21 was lower than it had been in previous periods.
20 fatal accidents occurred last year alone when there was less than one death every two days on average prior the coronavirus pandemic which peaked during 2018/19 but since then it has decreased slightly by five deaths per week according Manufacturing statistics available today
Of the 4,000 workers who are suffering with breathing or lung problems caused by their work each year (new and long-standing cases), over 0.14% come from this sector!
