What is an Industrial Accident?

An industrial accident is the term used to describe any accident that occurs within in an industrial workplace, including building sites, factories and construction environments.

As with any workplace there are a number of guidelines that must be met according to the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) however as the industrial industry is considered dangerous it is even more important that these regulations are followed by employers.

For example, the machinery used in the industrial workplace such as drills, hammers and electrical equipment can cause severe injuries if it is not maintained and, if needed, repaired regularly.

It is also essential that employees are given regular safety talks that explain the potential dangers that they face within the working environment and how these hazards are managed in order to reduce the likelihood of an industrial accident occurring.

Common causes of Industrial Accidents

Some of the most common causes of industrial accidents include:

  • Inadequate safety training
  • Lack of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Failing to use safety signs to alert employees to hazards
  • Machinery not being maintained and repaired

There are many other causes of industrial accidents however these are the most common reasons that our accident at work solicitors have seen in the industrial accident cases we have successfully acted on.
