Machinery Accidents in the Workplace

If you have had an accident in your workplace and you believe it was through someone else’s fault you can make a claim for compensation. This financial reimbursement is meant to balance any pain and suffering you may have experienced and financial losses due to time off work, treatment costs and associated daily living costs. You will need to evidence that the accident occurred due to your employer’s negligence. One of the most dangerous places to work is in a factory or manufacturing environment due to the presence of complex machinery.

The responsibility of your employer

Your employer has a duty to ensure that all machinery you will use to fulfil your job role is safe. This may include ensuring associated equipment such as “guards” and “protectors” are applied correctly. The machine must also be maintained on a regular basis. The worker must be trained in how to use the machinery and in some cases issued with personal protective clothing.

Types of machinery accidents

It has been said that machinery is only dangerous when it is not being used appropriately and statistics do suggest that major incidents occur often due to inadequate or poor training. Common accidents occur due to:

  • Loose clothing or jewellery getting caught in the machine
  • Inexperience with the machine or the processes involved
  • Body parts getting caught within a machine (Crush accident)
  • Repetitive strain injury (the employer is left on a task too long)
  • Noise of the machine causes hearing problems

Making a claim

If you are an employee who has suffered an injury through no fault of your own you can make a claim for personal injury compensation. The reward you receive may offer financial help in supporting you through the period of your injury. It may also help prevent further accidents happening as changes to health and safety measures are tightened. Employers expect there to be compensation claims and factor this into their budgets by taking out liability insurance. At our expert solicitors can guide you through the process.
