About Production line and Factory Claims

Our experienced solicitors in work accident claims will help you get the highest compensation after experiencing a Production line or Factory accident. Factory and productions line workers are exposed to a lot of danger working in such an environment, it is the employer’s duty of care under the Health and Safety Act of 1974 to ensure that their workers are kept safe whilst at work. Heavy apparatus are commonly used in all factories, and the staff needs to be kept safe for things to run smoothly, however in the fast pace of a factory environment, it can be easy to forget the safety standards that must be set to ensure the safety of the staff, this is when accidents can happen.

Common production line and factory compensation claims

It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that their staff are always safe and stick to any procedures to enforce that. There is a range of accidents that could occur in a factory or production line that could cause harm to their staff; however, the most common ones include:

  • Slips, trips and falls can be very dangerous when working with heavy objects and operating around heavy machinery. Walking around with heavy objects and tripping can be very dangerous. Employers must ensure that anything that is a trip hazard, must be put away to lower the risks of a trip.
  • Mishandling heavy objects can also be a very common factory claim. All staff must get the correct training on how to carry heavy objects and reduce the chances of strain. Lifting heavy objects over a period can be dangerous and can cause long term complications to the back, neck and shoulders.
  • Objects are commonly stacked and stored in factories and production lines. If objects are not secured properly, they can pose a very dangerous risk of falling on the staff, falling objects can cause some serious harm.

We advise that these are just some examples of factory accident claims, if you have been hurt in a factory due to no fault of your own, we advise that you contact one of our solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side now.

Employers Duty of Care

It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that all the staff is safe to the best possible standard when working in a factory or production line. The best way to enforce that is to keep to a strict guideline to ensure this, by:

  • Providing correct training for a specific role in the factory, and if moved onto other roles, to provide the training for that.
  • Checking apparatus and machinery consistently to ensure its safety.
  • Providing the safety equipment for the staff, including; Hi-Vis jackets, footwear, goggles etc.
  • Keeping the floor free from tripping hazards and clearing them up when detected.
  • Carrying out risk assessments regularly, ensuring that if there is anything that could pose a danger to the staff, it is eliminated and taken care of straight away.

We advise that if your employer failed to provide an adequate duty of care to you, you may be eligible to make a claim and get compensation for any injuries that you may have faced.
