Moving Heavy Goods at Work

While most of us are sometimes worried about getting injured whilst on roads and other places, we can also become a victim of an accident at our workplace. People can be injured whilst using machines and equipment and also while moving heavy goods at work. To prevent injuries at work whilst moving heavy loads, it is important that machinery such as forklifts are in proper working condition. If you think that the wheels are worn due to over-use or there are other defects then you have a duty to inform your employer about this so it can be repaired.

If you are injured during moving heavy goods at work you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. This is if the accident was caused by your employer’s negligence. Often this can include a failure to conduct risk assessments, failing to provide adequate training and supervision, failure to provide protective clothing and failing to maintain equipments and machinery.

"I was very nervous about claiming but Cooks made it so easy. I filled in a form, went to a Dr’s appointment arranged by them, and they did the rest."
