Machinery Claims

Whilst operating dangerous machinery at work may seem like a much more dangerous job than for example, working in an office, but the fact remains that employers owe the same duty of care to their workers to keep them safe and so workers operating machinery should still be kept safe from accidents and injury.

Therefore, a machine operator who is injured at work whilst operating machinery could have a right to claim compensation.

Machines of all types are commonly used in various workplaces, from food processing plants and garages to furniture and steel turning workshops. All such machinery should have been put through stringent inspection and maintenance tests before it is considered safe for use and provided for use by workers. However, despite these legal requirements, machines still cause accidents and injuries at work on a daily basis.

The most common causes of accidents caused by machinery relate to inadequate Training of workers, no or no suitable provision of personal protective equipment and faulty machinery.

Professional attitude, non-judgmental or discriminative of age or values.
