Factories can be extremely hazardous places to work. Not only is the work demanding, employees are also required to come into contact with mechanical machinery, heavy parts and harmful materials.
It is the duty of the employers to ensure that health and safety regulations are being met and full training given to each employee.
It is also the duty of the employer to ensure that:
- Floors are kept clean and dry to avoid slips and falls
- Correct safety uniforms be supplied
- Machinery should be safe guarded
- Eye, ear and hand protection should be widely available
- Full training be given when operating fork lift trucks
Failure to ensure a safe working environment can lead to factory accidents such as slips trips and falls to more serious accidents such as fork lift truck accidents and chemical contact.
