Construction industry accident at work claims in Craven
The construction industry is known to be one of the jobs where accidents are more likely to happen. This is because there are so many people, all working under different bosses with lots of different tools, plant and equipment. On large building sites, before any new workers are allowed to begin, they have to attend a site meeting to learn all the rules about health and safety. If any of them are found not to be complying, such as not wearing a hard hat, they face instant dismissal and removal from the site. Large construction employers take matters relating to health and safety very seriously.
Small construction site accidents at work
Many of the problems are on smaller construction sites, the builders that are perhaps erecting an extension to a house, or repairing a roof. Building companies of this size are far less likely to comply with health and safety regulations, and their employees are more likely to be injured in an accident at work that was not their fault.
Obviously this does not apply to all small building companies, but there are many of them out there that think they can get away with cutting corners in these matters, and who often see the regulations as more trouble than they are worth. That is until someone is injured because of their negligence. Then, no doubt when they have to face accident at work claims in Craven, they wish they had complied.
It is on smaller jobs that ladders are more often used when there should be scaffolding in place, that safety harnesses are not supplied for employees working at height, and hard hats are thought of as something only the big companies use.
