Unsafe Plant Machinery Compensation Claims Information
If you’ve been a victim of an unsafe plant machinery injury in the workplace, then get in touch with us today to find out how much compensation you could be entitled too. The injury you have sustained is not your fault and our experts are here to help you. The money won’t solve all of your problems but it could go towards reducing the stress of a serious injury and being off work for a sustained period of time.
What's an Unsafe Plant Machinery Compensation Claim?
Industrial machinery is used on a daily basis within the workplace. If it is not regulated efficiently, or business owners refuse to comply with safety standards, employees and employers are at risk of injury. Regardless of the size of the machine being used, employees should receive the necessary training, as well as the required safety equipment prior to using any apparatus.
Am I Responsible for Carrying Our Unsafe Plant Machinery Risk Assessments?
Employers are responsible for carrying out regular risk assessments, as well as repairing and maintaining equipment when necessary. Every year, thousands of compensation claims are processed due to injuries sustained from unsafe plant machinery. Injuries range from small abrasions to amputations and crushed body parts. Trauma to the eyes can occur through loose particles being ejected from the machinery; burns from steam or hot water are also common. In the most serious cases, people have been killed.
Effective maintenance of plant machinery is imperative within the workplace. There are always going to be accidents when working with machinery; however, to reduce the number of injuries there are preventative measures that should be taken. Regular maintenance allows for the timely diagnosis of faults and irregularities within the machinery. Maintenance should be effectively planned and carried out by a trained professional, never attempt to do it yourself no matter how small the problem may appear.
Do I Need to Alert Employees to Potentially Unsafe Machinery?
When deficiencies within the machinery are pinpointed, if you are unable to fix the problem immediately, make it clear to all employees that the equipment is unsafe, and is out of use. Either take the machine off site or have it clearly labelled so as not to cause any confusion. An employer may notice a problem with the machinery before it is time for maintenance. When this happens, make certain that those working with the equipment stop immediately, follow the above steps by either taking the equipment off site or ensure that it is clearly labelled “out of use.” Once all precautionary measures have been taken, make sure that the problem is rectified immediately.
When Should Unsafe Plant Machinery Be Maintained?
When maintenance is taking place, be sure to have it done during shutdown periods, such as before or after shifts begin. This will prevent difficulties in coordinating maintenance and production. Accidents can also happen in the workplace as a result of careless employee practices. Yes, there may be unsafe machinery on site; however, if a worker is not complying with regulations, in terms of them wearing safety equipment you are both in the wrong. Regardless of whose fault the accident was, if it took place on your place of employment, you will be held responsible. You can reduce the risk of injury by ensuring that all employees are wearing the required protective clothing.
