Aerospace and shipbuilding

We know that as a worker in the aerospace and shipbuilding sector you will be highly skilled and often work in busy and high-risk environments.

At Unite Legal Services, we know the potential risks that you face when working in roles such as manufacturing, design, repair and engineering.

Use of heavy machinery and equipment, working in confined spaces, high levels of noise and vibrations, exposure to flammable gases or contact with hazardous materials, are just some of the factors that can result in personal injury or industrial disease.

We work closely with employers and safety representatives to ensure Unite members are provided with the appropriate equipment and training they need to carry out their work safely.

Unite Legal Services provides legal assistance to its members who are injured at work or suffer from health conditions as a result of working in high-risk conditions.
