Hernia Injury Claims
Suffered a hernia as a result of performing heavy lifting at work? If yes, you may be in a position to make hernia injury claims.
A hernia is basically a condition which can be caused when the muscular tissues weaken resulting in the protruding of body fat or an organ. This can happen either externally or internally. Hernia injuries can occur between the chest of a person and hips. In most cases, it happens in the abdomen area and in the groin.
Hernia injuries are quite common among workers who are required to perform heavy lifting and manual handling tasks. In order to prevent workplace related hernia, it is essential that employers take safety measures to reduce the risks. It is important that employers undertake the following:
- Provide the necessary training required to perform heavy lifting and manual handling tasks safely
- Carry out risk assessments to identify the risks associated with each manual handling and heavy lifting task
- Making the necessary changes to improve safety
- Provide lifting equipment to workers so that tasks can be carried out effectively and safely
- Assign the right number of workers for each task
