Industrial accidents can come in many forms. You may have suffered
- Injuries from lifting and/or carrying heavy objects.
- Inadequate personal protective equipment
- Road traffic accidents whilst working
- Slips, trips and falls from height.
- Defective work equipment
- Dangerous machinery
- Co-worker negligence
- Falling objects
- Public Liability
- Assaults at work
Naturally, some industries are more hazardous than others, especially if you are working with heavy machinery. However, that does not mean your employer is not liable if you are injured in an industrial accident.
Your employer is legally required to make sufficient effort to ensure the safety of their workers. There is no excuse for a failure to protect employees if the danger was reasonably foreseeable.
Particularly dangerous industries include
- Construction – involving heavy materials, equipment and possible exposure to asbestos.
- Farming and agriculture.
- Manufacturing and production line work.
- Waste and recycling.
- Transportation and storage.
