At Scotland Claims, we regularly work with clients who have been asked to work with machines that they have
not been fully trained on how to use, or equipment that is missing safety guards or has been modified without
updated safety provisions being installed. These kinds of things all increase the risk of injury, and your
employer (or in most cases, your employerâ€™s insurer) may be responsible for compensating you if your injury
is a result of their neglecting to guide you in operating such equipment safely.
