Moving equipment

Injured by moving machinery

Accidents at work involving moving machinery, objects and work equipment are one of the most common causes for injuries suffered in the workplace and is the third largest category of reported injuries after manual handling and slips or falls, accounting for over 10% of major injuries reported to HSE.

Your employer is under obligation to keep you safe from harm, minimising any potential risks and ensuring that the premises are free from hazards that could potentially cause accidents at work.
