You can make a facial injury at work claim in Manchester if you have suffered an injury through no fault of your own. The solicitors at Michael Lewin are happy to pursue compensation for any client who has a genuine case.
Mr B was awarded compensation after he sustained an injury to his face whilst he was at work. Mr B was hit in the face by a chemical called chrome oxide whilst he was working. Working with chemicals is a very dangerous job; employers should ensure that all their employees have received the appropriate training when using chemicals about the safe storage and handling methods they have to use. Employers should also ensure that the employees working with chemicals show an acceptable level of competence in this field before allowing them to work unsupervised. This will help to reduce the number of accidents that happen at work.
Your employer has a duty of care to:
? Prevent any risks to your health.
? Make the workplace a safe environment for you to carry out your work.
? Ensure that all machinery and plant is safe to use.
? Ensure that safe working practises have been set up and are being followed.
? Provide adequate first aid facilities.
? Inform you about any potential hazards involved in the work that you do.
? Set up any emergency plans should an incident or accident occur.
? Make sure that all materials in the workplace are stored handled and used safely.
Should your employer be in breach of any of the above and you have been injured as a result Michael Lewin Solicitors may be able to help you make a claim.
Mr B was awarded a total of £1750 when he made his facial injury at work claim in Manchester. Employers should also in conjunction with training provide all employees that work with chemicals with the appropriate personal protective equipment. Depending on the type of chemical being used and the job the chemical is being used for employees PE can be anything from latex gloves an d safety glasses to a full biohazard suit and breathing apparatus. Employers that are failing to supply employees with the appropriate PPE are neglecting their duty of care.
