Constructions sites are full of potential dangers and you could easily be injured in an accident that was not your fault while working on one. Falls from height, things falling onto victims, accidents with site traffic and collapsing trenches or walls are typical examples of construction site accidents that may mean you want to make a Beddau accident at work claim.
There are over 2 million workers on building sites at the moment, making it the largest industry in the country, and any one of the workers could suffer an injury because of an accident on site and they may want to make an accident at work claim.
Protective gear could save you having to make a Beddau accident at work claim
Wearing protective clothing can help to reduce the risks of you suffering from a serious injury while you are at work. There are all sorts of things you can wear such as goggles, ear protectors, gloves, hi-visibility jackets, and of course there are hard hats.
Hard hats have saved many potential victims from serious injuries since the compulsory wearing of them on construction sites was introduced. It is part of the rules and regulations that you should wear a hard hat as this could potentially save your life, but you cannot wear just any old hard hat, it has to be:
- In good condition, damaged ones should be discarded
- Be a good fit for the wearer
- Not stop the wearing of ear protection
Employers should supply you with these free of charge, but if you do buy your own, perhaps because you are self employed, always make sure you purchase it from a reputable dealer. There are many fakes on the market that will give little or no protection, and the extra cost of buying a good one could mean the difference between life and death if you are in an accident at work that was not your fault.
