STANSTED AIRPORT ACCIDENTS AT WORK
There are many different roles that someone might be employed in at an airport:
- Cabin crew
- Baggage handler
- Restaurant worker

Your employer has a duty of care to ensure your safety in your work environment. If health and safety standards are not met, then your employer may have to pay for any injuries that you have sustained while at work.
BAGGAGE HANDLER ACCIDENTS AT STANDSTED
One of the most common work accidents sustained in airports is lifting and manual handling accidents. Baggage handlers are most at risk of sustaining this type of injury due to these movements being a large part of their job role.
Manual handling and lifting accidents are some of the most common injuries that are sustained in airports and baggage handlers are the most at risk for sustaining these types of injuries due to the nature of their job.
If you work as a baggage handler your employer should provide certain necessary safety precautions:
- Adequate rest breaks and water.
- Adequate training to learn how to operate the machinery which helps to take out and put equipment into the hold.
- Rotating tasks between employees so that repetitive movements are not continuously repeated by the same person which could lead to strain or injury.
- Access to protective clothing such as ear protection or work boots.
- Proper training to know how to lift luggage and other items in the correct way so that injury is less likely to occur.
If these safety precautions have not been carried out by your employer and you suffer an injury, then you may be able to claim compensation.TRY THE ONLINE ELIGIBILITY CHECKER
