Injuries in factory jobs are not particularly rare, but your employer has a duty of care to prevent personal injury and accident in the workplace.

Types of factory accident

There are so many obstacles and dangers in busy factory environments. The most frequents types of accident are:

Many factory jobs also expose workers to hazardous chemical or materials, carrying a risk of industrial disease.

Why make a factory accident claim?

Thankfully, most factory work accidents are not fatal, and a full recovery will be made. 

But if the accident was due to a lack of precautions taken by your employer, then they may be negligent in their duty of care to you.  This could be as a result of:

  • Failing to minimise risk and comply with Health and Safety regulations
  • Failure to implement effective safety protocols and practices
  • Failing to inspect and maintain equipment and machinery
  • Insufficient staff training in the workplace

If you have been injured and need time off work to recover, making a claim can allow you the time you need, without the worry of unpaid leave and the expense of travelling for appointments and treatment.
