Working conditions in the industrial revolution in Europe in the 1800s

Things like cotton and textile were difficult for factory workers. They had to work long hours of labor and the conditions were hot. The workers didn't have any safety precautions and the machines used were not fenced which led to injuries. Children were often employed to navigate themselves between the moving machines. Most worked 12 hours or more a day which led to lazy workers. This is dangerous because since they are tired it can lead to death or very serious injuries because there aren't being attentive to there surroundings. Workers couldn't talk or anything like that, they basically didnt have any freedom.
