Gloves

Posted on June 7, 2016 by

Mr S was working on a building conversation. He was instructed to take down some metal racking from the ceiling. The method he was told to use was to simply grab the racking and pull it out, which he did.

He hadn’t been told that the edges of some of the racking was quite sharp, nor was he given any gloves. The inevitable happened. As he grabbed and pull at the racking, a sharp edge cut him.

After Mr S got in touch with us we put the claim to his employers. We pointed out that they could and should have provided work gloves. They also could and should have warned Mr S that there were sharp edges. If they had done, the accident would not have happened. They have accepted this, and Mr S will now be receiving the compensation that he is entitled to.

Having the correct equipment really makes a difference. So does having the correct legal team. Call Andrew on 01924 473065 or click here to contact us for advice about your claim.
