After the farming and agricultural industries, more accidents happen in the building industry that in any other employment. There are so many dangers and hazards on a building site and if health and safety is not strictly adhered to there will be construction accidents in Kingston Upon Hull, just like there will be in other places all over the UK.
On construction sites run by large companies not sticking to the health and safety rules often results in instant dismissal, even for things like not wearing a hard hat on site. But smaller building companies are not always so strict and it is not unusual for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to close a job until all the health and safety has been put in place.
Some causes of construction accidents in Kingston Upon Hull
Construction accidents in Kingston Upon Hull can happen for many different reasons, just a few examples being:

- Accidents with onsite vehicles and plant, or vehicles delivering to and taking things away from site.
- Floors that are incomplete so not stable.
- Scaffold not properly secured.
- Using ladders where scaffold should be in place.
