Construction is continuing apace all over the UK, and Treharris is no exception. This is a small town in South Wales, towards the very southernmost end of Merthyr Tydfil. With a population of around 6,300, some locals work in the town while others commute out to other bigger areas nearby. The local railway station provides a connection with Cardiff Central, which some commuters use. However, some locals work in the construction industry, and while construction site compensation in Treharris is a rarity, there could potentially be times when workers are injured and they are entitled to make such a claim.
Construction work is one of the more potentially-dangerous types of work people can do. When you think about a construction site and the process of building large structures such as houses and other buildings, it is perhaps not surprising that accidents could happen.
Examples of dangers on construction sites
Construction sites can be potentially dangerous because of moving vehicles, pedestrians and the requirement for some people to work at height. This makes mention of just three potential dangers – there are others as well.
The good news is that diligently following health and safety rules makes it a lot easier to prevent such things from happening. If you can do this, you will stand a chance of staying safe while working on the site. Personal protective equipment can also help to keep you safe, so it should be issued and worn at all times while you are there.
