Making a construction site claim in Neath Port Talbot with Accident Advice Helpline
When working in the construction industry it is important to follow the rules and regulations as well as the safety procedures laid down by your employer on every site. Failure to adhere to these rules and regulations can lead to accidents occurring and individuals just like you ending up injured and possibly unable to work for weeks, months or perhaps longer.
Accident Advice Helpline and their team of professional advisers have provided help and support for many people who have been injured in construction site accidents that were not their fault and have helped them pursue a successful construction site claim in Neath Port Talbot.
Appropriate safety measures and equipment
When working on a construction site you should always be kitted out with the relevant attire and head gear such as hard hats, hi-vis jackets etc. Your employer has a responsibility to ensure that you and all other members of the work force are wearing such garments and headgear (and also footwear) and to ensure that when it comes to using specific equipment adequate training has been provided.
Failure to do this constitutes a failure in the duty of care of both you and the other members of the workforce and accidents occurring as a result of this may be eligible to make a construction site claim in Neath Port Talbot.
Knowing your environment at work
Whilst working on a construction site the environment can often change almost on a daily basis. When this happens it should be the case that regular updates are given as to how things are changing and what obstacles (new or old) may be in the area. Again a failure to provide such information as well as training on how to deal with such obstacles may well constitute a failure in the duty of care on behalf of your employer and you may be entitled to compensation in.
