Factory Accidents

According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) the number of injuries at work has reduced substantially over the past decade.

However, there are still too many happening on a daily basis in factories and warehouses across the UK.

Injuries in factories, warehouses and in the workplace can be varied and could mean you may be entitled to make a claim. Injuries can occur as a result of:

  • Lack of training or induction procedures
  • Defective machinery or equipment 
  • Failure to provide employees with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Electric shock or electrocution
  • Exposure to dangerous substances
  • Fork lift truck accidents 
  • Manual handling (bending, lifting, pulling or reaching)
  • Being hit by falling objects
  • Crushing
  • Slips trips or falls from uneven or slippery floor surfaces or un-cleared spillages
  • Slips trips or falls due to walkways not being kept clear of obstructions
  • Poor ventilation, lighting or air quality
  • Industrial deafness
  • Health and Safety procedures not being followed
  • Report the accident immediately to your supervisor or manager
  • Make sure that the accident is accurately recorded in the accident report book. Your employer has to record the details of all accidents and the record may be vital evidence in your case
  • Prepare a detailed sketch plan of the incident as soon as possible. This should clearly show the location of the defect and any warning signs present. Also this should show any other relevant information such as location of any witnesses
  • Obtain contact details for any witnesses to the accident
  •  If possible, take photographs of the location of the accident and whatever it was that caused your accident
  •  Seek medical treatment
  •  Keep a list of all expenses which you incur as a result of the accident and hold onto any receipts
