Working as a warehouse operative often involves using machinery, industrial vehicles like fork-lifts – and lifting and moving heavy loads around the warehouse manually.
In warehouses which service major online retail companies, warehouse operatives can also sustain back and leg injuries as a result of spending hours on their feet walking about the warehouse as they collect products for orders, often under pressure to meet strict time targets.
Employers have a legal duty to make sure risks are properly assessed and staff are trained and supervised properly. But working under pressure or failures in staff management can soon lead to injury and accidents.
Some of the injuries warehouse operatives can claim for include:
Accidents warehouse operatives can claim for include:
In the case of fatal injuries in warehouse accidents, the dependants of an employee fatally injured can make a claim for compensation if the employer is liable.
Dependants of warehouse operatives who have died from work-related disease such as asbestosis or mesothelioma can also claim compensation, even if industrial disease is diagnosed post-mortem.
Claims for accidents and injury at work compensation fall under the area of law known as personal injury.
