Many occupations within the world of work require heavy lifting, meaning it is essential that correct training is given and safety guidelines are clearly displayed.
If a workplace fails to provide the proper instructions or safety information, lifting injuries can result in a successful claim for compensation being made.
Workplace Lifting Regulations
Lifting injuries commonly occur in environments where a lot of manual work is required, such as a factory or warehouse.
Each company should have health and safety procedures in place which incorporate training in how to safely lift heavy equipment without injury. If required, equipment such as a forklift truck, helmets and additional safety equipment should also be provided.
Of course, factory workers are not the only people at risk of a lifting injury. Removal workers, nurses, paramedics and even office workers can all suffer lifting injuries, and are all just as likely to make a successful claim.
However you suffered your injury, if you were not to blame then Croftons Solicitors are on hand to provide the help you need.
