Unsafe Machinery in the Workplace

As modern industrial equipment becomes more complex and powerful, so injuries suffered through the use of unsafe or dangerous machinery have become more severe. Injuries can range from cuts, scratches and lacerations to crushes, breakages and amputations. In all cases, it is the responsibility of your employer to ensure your safety in the work environment and instigate risk assessments carried out on any machinery in the workplace.

What constitutes unsafe machinery?

Some workplace machinery will be singled out as needing specific risk assessments because of how dangerous they are. This may result in machines being equipped with appropriate safeguards for safe use. It may be that it is deemed workers need constant supervision or that the machine is regularly monitored to ensure it is in safe working order. There may also be a need to put clear procedures in place for maintenance or the cleaning of the machine (turning the machine off, unplugging the machine beforehand).

But, in reality a machine can only be dangerous with a person present. The individual employee may need to be trained as to how to use the machinery, or be equipped with personal protective equipment. The amount of time spent on the machine may need to be regulated so overexertion, tiredness and repetitive strain injury is taken into account.

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 Workplace Accident Helpline our expert solicitors can guide you through the process.
