The construction industry is one of the more dangerous places to work, and with the exception of farming, has more serious accidents and injuries occurring every year. The large construction companies take health and safety matters very seriously in an attempt to reduce the numbers of workers injured, but still a construction accident in Hardwick can happen, just like it can anywhere else in the UK.
Have you been injured in a construction accident in Hardwick?
A construction accident in Hardwick can happen for a variety of reasons, such as:
- Tools or materials being dropped from height and hitting someone
- Electrical faults
- Floors or walls collapsing
- Heavy plant and machinery
- Site vehicles
- Workers not following the health and safety rules
A lot of the larger construction companies treat any breach of health and safety as gross misconduct, and fire the guilty person immediately. But on small construction sites, such as house extensions or roof repairs, this is not always the case. On these smaller sites, it is often the employer that encourages workers to do things that are outside the rules, so it is no surprise that it is on smaller sites that a lot of the accidents happen.
