Unfortunately, injuries due to factory accidents remain high in Ireland and across Europe.
Due to the large industrial nature of most factories, factory injures can have an extreme effect on an individual’s quality of life.
Exposure to everything from toxic materials to flammable materials to heavy machinery can mean a factory worker is vulnerable to serious injury if due care isn’t taken to ensure the safety of the employee.
