Construction site accidents
An extremely common accident at work today is accidents which take place on a construction site. Construction sites often have complex equipment and machinery and there are various potential hazards which should always be identified and everybody should be made aware of how to work safely with these. All employer’s have a legal duty and care of duty to ensure that all their workers health and safety needs are considered and accounted for at all times and that proper planning is in place in order to do this. This means having extensive training which must be essential for all employees and workers. As well as strict policy and procedure which all should be made aware of.
If they fail in that duty, for example by not providing the correct protective clothing, not giving adequate health and safety training or not carrying out sufficient risk assessments and an accident occurs which causes pain, suffering or emotional distress to a worker then that worker may be entitled to compensation.
