Factory and Warehouse Accidents Solicitors Scotland

Working in a factory or warehouse comes with numerous potential hazards. Generally, health and safety in these workplaces is improving, and accidents are decreasing year-on-year. However, accidents, injuries and, in the worst cases, fatalities do still occur. Statistics provided by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) reveal that 2% of employees in the manufacturing industry sustain a work-related injury each year. If you think you might have a claim for an injury you have suffered at the factory or warehouse where you work, call the expert solicitors at Jones Whyte Law today.

Factory and Warehouse Injuries

The inherent danger of factory and warehouse environments mean injuries can happen in many different situations. The most common accidents in the manufacturing industry are:

  • lifting and handling;
  • slips, trips and falls;
  • impact with objects; and
  • contact with machinery.

Injuries are also wide ranging, from those that are minor and require minimal time off work to serious injuries that have a life changing impact. Common injuries sustained in factories and warehouses include:

  • back and neck injuries;
  • hearing loss;
  • hand arm vibration syndrome;
  • amputations; and
  • electrical injuries.

Safety Measures

Your employer has duties under various regulations to put measures in place to reduce the risk of accidents and injuries occurring at your workplace. These requirements include:

  • to provide personal protective equipment (PPE), including gloves and eye guards;
  • to maintain a health and safety policy;
  • to assess the risks;
  • to provide facilities like toilets, washing areas and drinking water; and
  • to provide adequate health and safety training.

If you have been injured in an accident at work, and you believe your employer is responsible, then contact Jones Whyte today and we can guide you throughout. In most cases, you will have three years in which to bring a claim – so it is important to act quickly.
