    Cover for self-employed labourer injuries


    Being involved in an accident at work on a construction site can be a distressing and traumatic experience. This can be especially distressing if you are suffering from self-employed labourer injuries, as you are likely to suffer a severe financial loss if you are involved in an accident on a construction site. But you needn’t fear not being covered; we explain why.

    Self-employed labourer injuries

    Many of those who work on construction sites are in fact self-employed. However, just because a worker is self-employed does not automatically disqualify them from pursuing a claim for compensation. The courts have in the past recognised this potential legal quagmire and compensation has been awarded against sub-contractors where they have been found to be in breach of a duty to ensure a reasonably safe working environment for the workers on site. There are a number of factors to identify who is at fault in the wake of a self-employed accident. These include determining the party who was in control of the work at the time and whether or not they contributed negligently towards the accident.

    Reducing instances of self-employed accidents

    It is almost impossible to completely eliminate all forms of injuries and accidents on construction sites but always ensure that you wear a hard hat and a high-visibility jacket or vest on site in order to prevent injury. If you work with power tools, remember to take regular breaks to prevent injuries such as vibration white finger or a repetitive strain injury.
