What are some of the risks and hazards resulting in plumbing injuries? 

Working in confined spaces- plumbers often work in tight spaces and at awkward angles that increase their risk of personal injury on the job. Some of the most obvious of these include working on boilers, enclosed pipes, and it tight ducts. These tight spaces increase the risk of injury and dangerous accidents occurring. 
 
Slips, Trips and Falls- Plumbers often work on high scaffolding, using ladders, and on wet surfaces. 
 
Extreme temperature conditions, regularly being called out to work on pipes that are extremely hot, or iced over. This increased the risk of severe injuries occurring, such as burns from overheated pipes, often without the correct PPE equipment being provided, or slips on icy surfaces. 
 
Repetitive motion injuries- This goes hand in hand with the confined and awkward conditions that plumbers often have to work in to reach the affected pipe or area. When sitting in these uncomfortable positions, and without adequate training on how to prevent them, plumbers often incur muscle strains, soft tissue damage, and back problems. 
 
Falling objects- When using scaffolding and ladders, there is always an increased risk of head injuries from falling objects when property safety measures are not in place. 
 
If you are a plumber, and have been injured by any of these risks, or in any other way, as a result of the negligence of your employer, then get in touch with MG Legal today to discuss your potential personal injury claim
