All employers have a duty to ensure the safety of their staff by ensuring the correct Health and Safety measures are taken.
All employees should have full training when working in a warehouse to ensure not only their own safety but also the safety of others around them. If insufficient training has been given then a warehouse accident becomes more likely, often resulting in the employee making a warehouse accident compensation claim for compensation.
The correct personal protection equipment should be supplied to staff to ensure they can go about their tasks fully equipped. If this is not supplied and an accident happens then a claim may be possible.
Risk assessments should be carried out in warehouses to ensure the suitability and safety of the facilities.
Warehouses are very often busy with employees working very quickly to meet deadlines. Stock and machinery along with the employees working at speed can, at times, lead to short cuts being taken by the workers or employers leaving the warehouse safety at an unacceptably low level.
Being injured in a warehouse at work in an accident may happen due to a number of reasons.
Being hit or run over in a forklift truck warehouse accident happens regularly where an employee is going about their job and the forklift truck driver fails to see the worker, hitting them, resulting in an injury. It is very often when the forklift is reversing or carrying a very high load that these types of accidents happen.
Boxes of stock, often heavy, usually need to be moved in the warehouse and if heavy boxes are lifted incorrectly it may cause a back injury, a hernia can also be suffered in this way. Employees whose jobs involve lifting should be fully trained in safe lifting practices. Thousands of work days are lost every week from employees suffering a back injury due to lifting heavy stock incorrectly as they have not been trained correctly by their employer.
A slip accident in a warehouse may happen as a result of spillages, a leaking roof or cleaning. Any wet floor in a warehouse should be highlighted with wet floor warning signs and cleared up as soon as possible. If no warning signs are in place and an accident happens resulting in an injury, a claim for compensation may be possible.
A trip accident in a warehouse could be due to stock incorrectly placed on the floor by another worker or from trailing cables.
Falling from a height in a warehouse may result in serious injuries. Platforms should be made safe so employees can go about their job safely. An accident falling from a ladder in a warehouse may happen if the ladder is the wrong type or is not properly secured at the bottom.
Good housekeeping is essential in a warehouse to ensure deliveries can be received safely and so that the day to day running of the warehouse is as smooth as possible.
The most common injuries caused in a warehouse accident, which we deal with, are for fractured or broken bones and soft tissue injuries. These injuries are usually caused by falling awkwardly or by being crushed by a forklift truck in a warehouse accident.
Any work accident in a warehouse should be reported to a manager or supervisor and the details should be recorded in the works accident book. It is vitally important to ensure the correct details are logged in the accident book and any witnesses should have their details recorded as well. The accident book entry can be used by a personal injury solicitor should a claim for compensation for a warehouse accident be made.
There is a three year timescale in which to claim for a warehouse accident at work. This said, the earlier a claim is made, usually the easier it is to obtain all the relevant information.
An employer cannot dismiss an employee for making an accident compensation claim; all employees have a legal right to claim for injuries that are due to employer negligence.
Any injury suffered in a warehouse accident will need to be recorded on medical records in order to make a claim for being injured in a warehouse.
Making an accident at work compensation claim for being injured at work in the warehouse can be handled by our warehouse injury claim specialist solicitors. We have a number of highly experienced solicitors with an excellent track record in winning warehouse accident compensation claims.
We always ensure anyone who is injured in a warehouse accident at work, or any other location, is awarded maximum injury compensation.
In order to assess the full extent of the injury suffered in the accident, once the claim is running, a medical examination will be made. This will be organised by your appointed warehouse accident claim specialist solicitor and will be local to where you live. The report made by the medical specialist will then be used by the solicitor to fight for maximum compensation for the warehouse injury.
