Warehouse Injury Compensation Claims Information

Businesses in the Warehousing sector are concerned with running storage and warehousing facilities for a wide array of products – including clothing, appliances, electronics, food and much more. In 2018, around 188,000 people were employed in UK warehouses, although the Covid pandemic led to a sharp increase in the number employed within the sector.

The global Warehousing market was valued at $245 billion in 2020. Tech and online shopping giant Amazon are among the industry’s major players. Warehouse work can be dangerous, particularly when a clear health and safety protocol is not in place, or machinery is not properly maintained. Floor hazards, warehousing machinery and conditions that impact on workers’ wellbeing can all contribute to warehouse accidents and injuries.

Warehouse Injury Statistics: What are the Most Common Kinds of Warehouse Injuries in the UK?

Warehouse workers can sustain many types of injury at work, but which is the most common? Here are some warehouse injury statistics that may be of interest: 

HSE data from 2018-19 revealed that slips, trips and falls account for the greatest number of non-fatal warehouse injuries.

And sadly, data from RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulation) released in March 2021 revealed that the number of fatal injuries in the Services sector (which incorporates Warehousing) increased by 23% when compared to the figures released in March 2020. By contrast, the number of fatalities across all industries fell by 7%.

Bodily injuries commonly sustained in warehouses include broken bones, strained muscles and head injuries (which may lead to brain damage). Workers may also experience back injuries following a slip, trip or fall. 

Whatever kind of warehouse accident you have suffered, our legal experts can help. Contact the team at Tylers Solicitors today and find out if you could be eligible to claim compensation.

    How Do Warehouse Injuries Occur?

    The majority of warehouse injuries occur due to a failure to adhere to health and safety best practices. Warehouse accidents are frequently caused by tripping hazards, such as wet floors or uneven surfaces.

    Unsafe machinery, employee negligence and falling objects can also cause serious injuries. Workers may be hurt or trapped by the moving parts in warehouse machinery. Insufficient health and safety training or the failure to provide suitable protective equipment may also cause or exacerbate warehouse injuries. For instance, an employer who has not been shown how to lift heavy goods safely may injure themselves whilst carrying stock. Or, someone welding with improper protective equipment may sustain an eye injury.

    Working conditions can also be a factor. For example, when staff are pressured to work extended hours, without the opportunity to take breaks and rest sufficiently – or expected to work in uncomfortably hot or cold conditions over extended periods, this can affect their ability to carry out their duties safely and correctly. Poor working conditions such as these greatly increase the risk of warehouse accidents.

    What steps should employers take to avoid warehouse injuries? 

    If you are a warehouse worker, your employer has a duty of care to ensure your safety and that of your colleagues whilst at work. They should take reasonable steps to keep the workforce safe and reduce the risk of warehouse injuries. This may include placing appropriate signage or floor markings to warn of dangerous areas or hazards within the warehouse – or marking the areas where PPE is required.

    Appropriate protective equipment should be supplied to all employees working in these areas. All employees should be given adequate health and safety training so that they can perform their roles safely and competently. Finally, any machinery, equipment or vehicles in the warehouse should be properly cleaned, cared for and maintained in line with the manufacturers’ guidance. They should also be thoroughly inspected on a regular basis, in order to ensure that they are safe to operate.

    If an employer’s failure to adhere to any of the aforementioned safety measures results in a warehouse accident, there is a good chance that the injured party will be able to claim compensation.

    If you have had a warehouse accident, your first step should always be to seek the appropriate medical attention.

    Following this, you should record the details and circumstances of your injuries. This should also be noted in your employer’s Accident Report Book.

    Next, if the accident was not your fault, you should contact a reputable personal injury solicitor at the earliest opportunity. As a general rule, the window for making a warehouse injury claim is three years, although the sooner you begin proceedings, the better your chance of securing compensation. This is due to the fact that we are likely to remember recent events in more detail and with greater accuracy. And, the more time that elapses following a warehouse accident, the more difficult it becomes to gather compelling evidence with which to build a legal case.

    Here at Tyler’s Solicitors, we have helped many people affected by workplace injuries, including warehouse accidents to claim the compensation they’re entitled to. For more information, please contact our team of no-win-no-fee solicitors on 0800 699 0079.

If you’ve been injured by falling stock in a warehouse that wasn’t your fault, we are here for you.

Due to failures in health and safety, it is also possible for tripping or falling hazards to be left on the warehouse floor.
