Workplace crush injuries are most common in settings where heavy machinery or materials are used. This could be in the construction industry, such as on a building site, in farming or agriculture, in manufacturing, warehouses or any workplace where heavy items are present e.g. storerooms. Some crush injuries at work could be caused by:

  • Heavy goods or items falling from height
  • Machinery that draws a hand or limb into it
  • Heavy equipment that isn’t under the full control of the operator(s)
  • Insecure loads slipping or falling onto someone
  • An incident where someone is pinned between machinery and a hard surface e.g. a wall

Common parts of the body to suffer a crush injury in the workplace are hands, feet, arms, legs or torso.

If your injury was caused because of the negligence of someone else at work or because your employer has failed in their duty of care towards you, you might be able to make a crush injury compensation claim.
