What is a factory accident claim? 

It is no surprise that factories can be a difficult and dangerous place to work, with a lot of moving parts, equipment, and different job roles all taking place under one roof. If you have been injured while working in a factory, then there is a good chance that your employer has broken their legal duty of care to you. This duty of care comes under the Health and Safety Act 1974 (HSWA), and means that all employers must take every possible precaution to protect their employees from injuries at work. It covers all aspects of employment, and includes an employer’s duty to supply adequate training, to maintenance of any equipment, to providing PPE where necessary
If you have been injured in an accident at work in a factory, then our team are here to help you to make a no win no fee factory accident claim today. Our team regularly work with clients who have been injured while at work in a factory, and we go above and beyond to ensure that our clients obtain the maximum financial compensation. Simply contact us online here for a free no obligation consultation with a solicitor within one working hour. 

How do injuries occur to factory workers? 

If you work in a factory or on a production line, you will usually work long hours, and in conditions where you are surrounded by other employees, and working with heavy, dangerous, machinery. If any machinery in a factory is not maintained, not serviced regularly, or is by its very design, a dangerous piece of equipment, and you sustain a personal injury, then you may be able to make a factory accident claim for personal injury, on a no win no fee basis.  
There are also many other ways that factory workers are injured, other than being injured by dangerous machinery. MG Legal’s expert factory accident solicitors have acted for factory workers who have been injured as a result of the following accidents at work: 
by lifting heavy objects 
being hit by falling objects 

How much is my factory accident claim worth? 

The amount of financial compensation that you could receive in your factory accident claim for personal injury depends on the injuries that you have sustained, and how severe they are. Your claim will be broken down into a number of different damages, which are broken down here.

Has my employer breached their duty of care obligations to me? 

To counter the potential threat of personal injury to factory workers, the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, and The Six Pack Regulations were put in place. The six pack regulations, are made up of the following: 

1. The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations: 

All employers must assess any significant risks to their employees. Your employer must keep a record of any risk assessment that has been carried out, and detail any procedures that are in place, or to be put in place, once a risk has been identified. Particular attention must be given by employers when carrying out risk assessments for those who are classed as minors, being younger than 18 years of age. The employer must appoint as many competent persons as are necessary to ensure compliance with health and safety laws. 

2. Manual Handling Operations Regulations: 

Your employer must prepare a risk assessment of your job role to ensure that you are provided with the correct equipment to lift any object which could cause a risk of injury. These risk assessments must be carried out on a regular basis, and if they are not, or no manual handling training is provided, and you suffer a personal injury as a result, then you may be able to purse a claim for personal injury. 

3. Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Regulations: 

There are workstations in any factory, mainly found in quality control, accounts or the human resources departments. As a result of this, employers must carry out risk assessment of all workstations to ensure that factory employees are subject to the lowest possible risk of personal injury when using display screen equipment. Employers must ensure that regular breaks away from screens are taken by factory workers, in order to avoid any personal injury. Subject to the Display Screen Equipment Regulations, factory workers using any display screen are entitled to an eye and eyesight test paid for by their employer. The test must be repeated at regular intervals. If it shows that special spectacles or lenses are needed for DSE work, the employer must cover the cost of this as well. 

4. Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations: 

This imposes duties on factory owners relating to everything from maintenance of equipment, and ventilation, to cleanliness and the amount of space owed to employees in a factory environment. 
Any factory worker, from vehicle manufacturing to clothing production, must work with machinery that is well maintained by their employer. Factory accidents are often a result of human errors, including poorly maintained machinery, including missing safety guards, or live electrical wires on display. Employers also have a duty to ensure that the factory is sufficiently ventilated, and that there is enough clean, fresh air to breathe. 

5. Provision and use of Work Equipment Regulations: 

This clause ensures that employees are not only supplied with the correct equipment for their job role, but that the machinery must be properly maintained and in working order. To avoid any injury to factory workers, the employer should take measures to prevent access to dangerous parts of machinery and to protect against the ejection of articles, substances, gases, liquids, dusts etc, overheating, fire or explosion, disintegration of parts of equipment, or extreme hot or cold surfaces. 

6. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Regulations: 

Personal Protective Equipment protects employees against health or safety risks at work. Depending on the job role, PPE can include items such as safety helmets, gloves, eye protection, high-visibility clothing, safety footwear and safety harnesses. If chemicals are in use, as they are in many factories, then PPE should include respiratory protective equipment (RPE). Making the workplace safe includes providing instructions, procedures, training and supervision to encourage people to work safely and responsibly. 
Even where engineering controls and safe systems of work have been applied, some hazards might remain. These include injuries to: 
• the lungs, eg from breathing in contaminated air 
• the head and feet, eg from falling materials 
• the eyes, eg from flying particles or splashes of corrosive liquids 
• the skin, eg from contact with corrosive materials 
• the body, eg from extremes of heat or cold

If you have been injured as a result of negligence in the workplace, and are over 18 years old, you have three years from the date of your injury to pursue a factory accident claim for personal injury.
