Construction site accidents
Construction sites are one of the most dangerous and unpredictable working environments and many employees are injured whilst working there. Despite recent changes in Health and Safety legislation to protect employees and contractors working on site, many employees are injured every year on building sites through no fault of their own.
The main contractor is responsible for the Health and Safety of the employees working on site at all times. In fact, they must ensure that their employees adhere to strict safety procedures and guidelines, to make sure:
- they provide adequate safety equipment for personal use such as protective clothing, steel toed footwear, gloves, hard hats, masks, goggles and high visibility tabards or jackets for employees or contractors working on site to reduce the risk of accidents and injuries occurring.
- they have procedures in place to check the safety and maintenance of equipment on a regulars basis
- they provide clear signposting and site safety guidelines to provide visual guidance for visitors, employees and contractors on site
- provide adequate training and supervision to employees before they start working on site
However, employees also have a responsibility to ensure that they:
- wear appropriate safety equipment whilst on site such as hard hats, protective clothing including gloves, goggles, masks, boots and any other protective clothing provided by the employer
- adhere to footpaths and pedestrian only areas
- report any concerns to their employer regarding unsafe practices or faulty equipment
- follow Health and Safety guidelines and adhere to safe working practices at all times whilst on site
