Claiming compensation for a lack of safety equipment on the production line

Working on the production line without an appropriate amount of safety equipment can often result in you obtaining an injury, as it is one of the most dangerous stations in the workplace. There are many different types of injuries which can be caused by a worker not having the correct safety equipment on a production line, with some common examples including facial injuries and even blindness where safety goggles are not worn.

If you have had an accident in the workplace which you believe could have been prevented, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. It is the role of your manager to uphold health and safety regulations at all time, so if they have failed to provide you with appropriate safety equipment then a claim could be taken out against them for negligence.

Where might I look to make a claim?

It is imperative that you are protected at all times in the workplace with appropriate safety equipment, so if you believe that this has not been the case then you could look to make a claim. This could result in several injuries, which include:

·         Claims against a failure to provide adequate safety equipment

·         Failure to provide safety goggles, safety boots and safety gloves 

·         Claims against occupational asthma

·         Claims against industrial deafness

·         Claims against asbestos-related diseases

Where might negligence occur in this situation?

In general any compensation claim that you make should be directed at a person who has displayed negligence towards you and has therefore put your health at risk. If you haven’t been provided with appropriate safety equipment then you could be entitled to make a claim; this could be made against a number of people including your manager or the company itself whose actions have resulted in you becoming injured. Making a claim could be a huge benefit to you and it could help you with any financial issues you have incurred as a result.
