Factory accidents cost employers and employees millions of pounds each year through what are mostly preventable accidents in a factory environment.
Each factory worker is entitled to the same health and safety protection as in other work places and as such Employers have a duty to carry out Health and Safety procedures and ensure a safe working environment for their employees. Examples of this include safeguarding moving parts, training to use machinery safely and to provide safety equipment such as safety shoes, protective gloves and goggles etc.
Factory Accidents can often be avoided and Employers are duty bound to undertake a full and extensive risk assessment which could include going through each area of the factory and highlight any specific areas of high potential risk of accidents and ensure they apply health and safety practices to avoid them.
Employers should be well versed with work methods and ensure they are carried out safely. They should provide full training for all employees to prevent any potential accidents in the future by way of induction training on joining the company as well as ongoing training for all existing employees.
