If you work in a factory or the manufacturing industry, you face serious dangers everyday. Due to the high risk of danger on the job, health and safety regulations must be implemented and followed to avoid accidents in the workplace happening. If these regulations are not followed and you are injured as a result, you are entitled to claim compensation.

If someone is involved in an accident in a factory, the consequences can be severe, sometimes even life changing. It's important to know that if you are injured and you believe it is due to no fault of your own, or it could have been avoided if the correct procedures were put in place you can claim compensation for your injuries.

Types of Manufacturing Industry Accident Claims

Thankfully, serious injuries are few and far between, but a large portion of the manufacturing industry injuries Forbes solicitors deal with involve the following:

  • Accidents/injuries from lifting heavy objects
  • Manual handling accidents
  • Accidents involving dangerous machinery
  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Industrial diseases
  • Dangerous chemicals accidents and exposure
  • Burns or cuts

These are just a few examples of the type of accidents that can occur in the manufacturing industry, and this list highlights the dangers factory workers face every day.

Manufacturing Employers' Duty of Care

Your employer has a duty of care to ensure your safety as much as possible at work, whether that is through providing the correct safety equipment, maintaining the safety standards of machinery or providing you with the adequate and appropriate amount of training to go about your tasks safely.

In addition, if your employer fails to comply with safety regulations, including the "Six Pack" regulations and you are injured as a result, you can claim compensation for your injuries.

The Six Pack Regulations are as follows:

  1. The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations
  2. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations
  3. The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations
  4. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations
  5. The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations
