St. Helens is a large town which is located in Merseyside, England. There are currently more than 105,000 residents in the town. It is also very popular among tourists from around the country mainly for its landmarks such as The Beecham Clock Tower for example.
Construction site safety
It is extremely important that every construction worker is as safe as possible at all times while at a construction site. Such a place hides many risks for the people working there. There are risks of falling from heights, burns, cuts, electrocutions, falling objects and more. However, there are also risks of more gradual injuries such as hearing loss and the common vibration white finger.
Construction workers can only do so much to protect themselves at the construction site. Employers are responsible for providing them with the training that they need in order to be able to safely do the jobs they are assigned to do. Lack of proper training is one of the most common reasons for accidents at construction sites. Another common reason is lack of safety equipment which is again something that the employer is responsible for.
