Manchester Airport Accidents at Work
There are many different jobs that someone might have at an airport, such as:
- Baggage handler
- Cabin crew
- Airport planner
- Restaurant worker
- Shop assistant
- Airline representative
No matter what position you hold within an airport, your employer has a duty of care to ensure your safety while at work. There are certain health and safety standards that they must meet. If they fail to do so and you become injured on their premises, they might be liable to pay you compensation
Baggage Handler Accident at Manchester Airport
Lifting and manual handling accidents are one of the most common types of accidents within an airport. Specifically, baggage handlers are most at risk of sustaining this type of injury as their job role involves making lifting movements and handling luggage.
There are certain provisions that your employer should make to lower the chances of sustaining a lifting or manual handling injury:
- Access to protective clothing such as sturdy work boots or hi-visibility jackets if needed.
- Adequate training for every staff member about how to safely lift items
- Changing tasks fairly often between employees so that no one member of staff is having to do the same lifting movements for a long time, which could create injury or strain.
- Access to enough rest breaks and refreshments
- Training about how to operate equipment which helps with manually handling luggage in and out of the aircraft hold
If these safety precautions have not been carried out and this has resulted in an injury, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Contact us today on 0800 342 3206 or online.
Other types of accidents
Slips, trips or falls at Manchester Airport
A slip, trip or fall injury is fairly common. At an airport, it could be caused by badly placed luggage or a wet floor. If you have suffered a similar accident that you were not responsible for, you may be able to claim compensation for your injury.
Luggage, baggage carousel or trolley injuries
Another typical scenario in which injury could occur is luggage falling from the baggage carousel or trolley. While less common, you might also suffer an injury due to a collision with a moving luggage trolley. No matter the scenario in which you have sustained your injury if it wasn’t your fault you may be owed compensation.

Escalator and lift accidents
It is possible to sustain an injury while using a moving travellator or a lift. While these accidents are less common, the resulting injuries are often quite severe. We understand how difficult it can be to deal with gaining a serious injury. We, therefore, want to make the process of claiming compensation as simple as possible.
Food health and safety and allergic reactions
Food can become contaminated if it is not stored, cooked or prepared properly. Eating contaminated food can sometimes result in food poisoning. While most food poisoning resolves itself in a few days, it could end up being more long-lasting depending on the severity of the illness. If you have suffered food poisoning due to eating food from an airport, you deserve compensation.
