What is an industrial injury?
An industrial injury is any disease, disability or injury caused by an accident at work. An injury can happen in any type of workplace including a construction site, factory or warehouse.
Employers have a duty of care towards their employees under the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) and other Health and Safety Regulations. If you have suffered an injury because your employer failed in their duty of care, then you may be able to claim industrial accident compensation.
