    About construction accidents

    As an industry which requires a lot of heavy lifting, dealing with building materials, contact with chemicals and more, construction is often though as an injury where there are high instances of accidents. The Health and Safety Executive state that:

    • The overall number of accidents in construction has fallen substantially in the last 40 years.
    • Self-employed workers make up a large proportion of those who suffer accidents in the field
    • £1.1 billion is the estimated annual cost of injuries and illnesses caused by working conditions
    • Around 2.3 million working days were lost as a result of workplace illness and injuries between 2013 and 2014.

    Whilst the numbers of accidents have decreased, there is still a long way to go to ensure safer working environments for the construction injury.
