Industrial injuries are those that have occurred in heavy duty environments such as construction, factories and warehouses. If you have suffered an injury in an industrial accident then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. This is because most industrial diseases are a result of an employer’s or an occupier’s negligence.

Employee Duty of Care

Employers have a duty of care towards the health and safety of their employees. This means that they are responsible for providing employees with the appropriate training (such as manual handling) and health and safety equipment (such as gloves and goggles).

The following are examples of some the most common causes of industrial injuries:

• Falling debris
• Faulty machinery
• Falling off scaffolding
• Slips and trips
• Industrial diseases such as asbestosis, vibration white finger, carbon monoxide poisoning and so on.

Make a Claim for Industrial Injury

If you suffer an industrial injury then there are certain steps you should take to ensure your claim has the best possible chance of being successful. You should ensure that the injury is recorded in your employer’s accident book and if the injury is serious it should also be reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), who are the watchdogs for health and safety in the work place. You should also make a note of anyone who was present when the injury occurred so that your Leeds accident claim lawyer can approach them to be a witness to your claim.
