Every seven seconds, a factory worker gets injured. This alarming statistic confirms that there is an evident need for stricter safety regulations in workplaces. Because of the increased risk of injury in factories due to abundant industrial equipment and heightened hazards, factory workers must be aware of the dangers that are associated with their place of work in order to limit injury.
- Burns: Fires and explosions quite often leave burns on those working in close proximity to the affected area. Chemical burns are also a major issue employees face while working in factories. Chemical burns occur when corrosive, synthetic materials come in contact with the soft tissues of the victim. One of the key elements in maintaining a safe workplace is keeping up with the latest safety standards.
- Machinery and Equipment Accidents: For many factory workers around America, heavy-duty vehicles and other industrial equipment play a significant role in their daily duties. This causes workers to grow accustomed to operating their company’s machinery on a daily basis. However, unfortunately even the most seasoned factory worker can fall victim to injury caused by machinery. Machinery accidents are usually caused by defective protective gear, inadequate training, and faulty machinery.
- Slip-and-Falls: Contrary to popular belief, a slip-and-fall accident is not limited to slipping. Slip-and-fall accidents can also include tripping, stumbling, and losing balance. If a person is injured while working on commercial premises, the owner of the store or building is usually responsible for the damages. On the other hand, filing a claim against government property owners can be a bit more complicated, being that they abide by stricter regulations. Regardless of the type of property, companies are responsible for the injuries their location may have caused.
I’m a factory worker. What do I do when I’ve been injured?
If you’ve been injured at your job as a factory worker, you may be eligible to receive reimbursement for your troubles. Because corporations must withhold safety standards, when they fail to do so, they must be held accountable. If you have been injured in the factory you’re working in, it’s best to seek legal representation as soon as possible.
