Factory accidents are often caused by employer negligence therefore they usually occur as a result of having inadequate safety measures in place.
Dangerous machinery is one of the most common causes of a factory accident, if employers have failed to provide safety talks on how to use the machinery the likelihood of an accident occurring is increased.
It is also the responsibility of an employer to ensure that the machinery within the factory is serviced and maintained as needed.
Slips, trips and falls in a factory caused by spillages, hazardous wires and failure to use safety signs are also a common cause of factory accidents. As in any workplace employers must implement appropriate safety signs to prevent accidents from happening.
