Causes of factory accidents

By its very nature, working in a factory can be taxing on both the mind and the body. Workers, particularly those on a production line, may have to use fast-moving machinery, as well as perform very repetitive actions that can cause strain injuries. Accidents and injuries can occur in factories for a number of reasons, including:

  • Faulty or defective equipment
  • Improper or lack of training
  • Uneven flooring
  • Spilt liquids
  • Debris
  • Loose wires
  • Chemicals that may cause burns
  • Unsafe electrical equipment
  • Improperly barriered higher levels
  • Absence of warning signs
  • Lack of appropriate protective gear
  • Leaking toxic chemicals and fumes

However your accident was caused, if it was a result of employer negligence, then you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. 

Types of injury

There are many injuries that can be caused in a factory and YouClaim’s solicitors have dealt with a wide variety, from crushing injuries to burns and severed digits caused by faulty equipment.

Employer’s duty

Factories and production lines are high-risk environments, and employers should take action to identify and address the potential causes of accidents. Employers have a duty of care to make their working environment as safe as possible by keeping machines well maintained, placing warning signs in appropriate places, providing safety gear and giving staff adequate training.

If they fail to create a safe working environment and you are injured as a result, you are able to make a claim for compensation.
