Work Injury – Accident At Work Compensation Claims – Cleaners

Work injury due to an accident at work compensation claim involving a slip, trip or fall often involve cleaners as much of their work involves negotiation of steps and walkways involving different floor types, over-reaching in difficult areas, cleaning steps, cleaning poorly lit rooms, using ladders, visiting wet areas such as kitchens and toilets.  Work injury to cleaners can be caused by fellow employees failing to dispose carefully their litter or by leaving trailing cables across the floor or causing water/liquid spillages and not cleaning it up.  As cleaners have no control over the orderliness of the workplace and combined with their difficult and varied duties, accidents at work causing a work injury are regrettably commonplace to cleaners.

Work Injury Cleaning Accidents At Work

Many accidents at work compensation claims arise where the cleaner tips, slips or falls in the workplace causing work injury resulting in bone fractures, cuts, sprains, bruising, head injury, back injury and back pain to mention a few.  Even serious injury or fatal accidents are not uncommon.

Many cleaners will often suffer from a work injury accident if involved in the catering or food processing industry where they are often required to clean between wet and dry floor areas.  The food preparation areas are particularly dangerous to slipping accidents where food, water, spilt beverages pose a significant risk of a work injury accident at work compensation claim.

Due to the varied duties of cleaners, the risk of a slipping, tripping or falling accident at work causing a work injury are not only confined to factors caused by others, but also by their own actions.  The use of heavy mop buckets, buffing machines, the use of Hoovers which involve cables can pose a serious tipping and slipping hazard resulting in work injury and accident at work compensation claims by solicitors.
