    Compensation for construction site neck injuries

    Whenever you think about injuries caused in the workplace, you will probably think of injuries caused through an accident more than anything else. While accidents can and do happen, they are rare. This is largely thanks to the Health and Safety at Work Act, which makes it clear what should and shouldn’t be done to make sure employers keep their workers as safe as it is possible for them to be.

    However there are situations in which injuries can be caused through incorrect lifting or the lifting of a heavy weight. Construction site neck injuries can be caused in this way. Someone might be expected to pick up a heavy load of bricks or other materials by hand for example. If they have not been trained to do this properly, or they haven’t got the appropriate tools or lifting equipment to do it, they might end up sustaining a nasty injury as a result.

    Avoiding construction site neck injuries

    Everyone working on a site of this nature should have the appropriate tools and training to support them in their job. It is the duty of their employer to make sure this is the case. In many instances workers will require safety equipment of some kind, but it is also important to make sure they are trained to know how to pick up items without incurring any injury.

    Of course, there are also instances where people may be hurt in an accident caused by another person. On the other hand if someone is working at height or in an otherwise-unsafe position, this could in turn lead to a fall that could result in construction site neck injuries.

    Long-term pain and discomfort

    One of the most common neck injuries to occur is whiplash, but this isn’t very likely on a construction site. However there are other injuries, such as impact, crushing or puncture injuries that could be potentially more likely to happen in the relevant circumstances.
