Anyone who works with machinery will understand the importance of equipment being kept in good working order. Defective machinery at work not only has the potential to negatively affect the day to day running of a business, it can also represent a significant danger to employees.
Employers have a duty of care to their staff, to make sure they are safe. They must ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to prevent accidents and injuries occurring, including keeping machinery and equipment safe to work with. Regular servicing and maintaince is essential to ensure equipment remains in good working order. This is particularly important in preventing workplace accidents such as factory accidents , construction accidents or industrial accidents where the machinery can be very sharp, heavy etc. or workers could be working at height ( ie on ladders or scaffolding).
If an employer does not properly maintain machinery or equipment, and as a result a member of staff injures themself, then there is a strong chance that the employee will be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation. It is vital that anyone who is injured while using machinery or equipment in the workplace speaks to a workplace accident claim specialist to ensure they get the best advice on the next steps to take.
