Compensation for welding accident

When it comes to performing construction either at home or in the workplace, welding materials together is a common form of joinery which helps to provide a strong and stable base for a whole range of supports and equipment. Welding involves the use of a heavy liquid metal which helps to form an incredibly secure connection, far stronger than that of nails, glue or any other common material that you may choose to connect your items with.

Unfortunately when it comes to working with power tools and other equipment there is always an element of risk involved and this is also true of welding equipment. In most cases welding equipment uses a coaslescence material to join two items together and the process involves using an incredibly hot temperature to melt the substance into a liquid and then allowing it to cool to form a connection. This can be a dangerous task if not done effectively and can lead the user with a number of injuries. 

How could I be injured in a welding accident?

There are a number of ways that you could be injured in a welding accident and some of these include:

  • Eye or skin injuries from the sparks often associated with welding equipment, as a result you are often required to wear protective eye equipment.
  • Burns from the hot material
  • Electrical shock from faulty welding equipment
  • Dangers of inhaling welding fumes
  • Dangers of ingesting hazardous coatings.

Who could I claim against?

When it comes to making a claim for welding injuries there are a number of people that you could choose to make a claim against. If you are required to complete welding as part of your job then you may be eligible to make a compensation claim against your employer if you feel that they have not provided you with the appropriate safety equipment or training to complete your task appropriately.

In addition, if the welding equipment that you are using is faulty and it breaks, or leaves you with an injury from an electrical shock as a result of a faulty electrical circuit then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
