Angus personal injury claims 

0

If you work in construction then you must be aware that your job has a few more hazards than many others and that you need to work harder to keep yourself safe than other people might in less physical jobs. You will still be able to make Angus personal injury claims if you are injured through no fault of your own when working in construction, but the rules are slightly different. If you weren’t doing everything in your power to stay safe, the injury may not be the fault of your employer. Here are some ways that you may be at fault for an accident when working in construction.

Not attending training

Before you start work on any project, you need to be trained fully so that you are able to do the job safely. If you are not offered training in advance of starting your job, any injuries that you sustain are the fault of your employer. If, however, you are offered training and then don’t attend or see it through to the end, then any injuries you sustain in this job could be considered to be your fault. Your employer should not let you on site if you do not have the training needed to do you job safely, but in reality this is not always the case.

Not wearing appropriate clothing

Appropriate clothing includes hard hats and other items of safety equipment, but can also include things like high-visibility vests so that other people can see you easily, and even just wearing clothing which covers you up properly so that you don’t have skin showing when working with more dangerous elements. Employers should provide whatever you need free of any charge and ensure that you wear it. Not all employers follow the letter of the law though and if you are injured in an accident caused by their negligence, you may be able to claim compensation.

Being reckless on-site

If you are working on a construction site then you need to have your wits about you at all times and be careful with what you are doing as much as possible. If you are running around, not paying attention or simply not doing the job that you have been assigned, you may be to blame if an accident happens.
