A hard hat could stop the need for an accident lawyer from Leigh-on-the-Sea
Leigh-on-the-Sea is a civil parish in Essex. It is part of Southend-On-Sea for administrative purposes becoming a civil parish in 1996, with its own town council. No doubt, from time to time, building work goes on there, and if any one works on any sort of building site, or in a warehouse for that matter, they are very susceptible to injuries from objects falling and hitting their heads. It does not have to be anything large, a small spanner dropped from height, will cause untold damage at the speed it will have reached by the time it hits someone’s head. There is the protection of hard hats available, and they have saved many lives since their introduction. If you work in an environment where others are working at heights above you, make sure you wear a hard hat or you could need the services of an accident lawyer from Leigh-on-the-Sea.
An accident lawyer from Leigh-on-the-Sea wants your hard hat to be good
Wearing a hard hat on a building site or in a warehouse is vital to your health and safety. Your employer should ensure that every employee has a well fitting, good quality hard hat to wear, as there are many fakes on the market that would give you no protection at all. The hard hat should be:
- In good condition; damaged ones should be discarded
- Be a good fit for the wearer
- Not stop the wearing of ear protection
If your hard hat does not comply and you sustain an injury because of it, you may be able to use an injury lawyer from Leigh-on-the-Sea.
