Head Injury Claim In South Derbyshire


Over the last couple of decades, great strides have been made in the health and safety on construction sites, and many workers lives have been saved because of it. There are many measures that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the employers in construction decided on, but one of the most important was the compulsory wearing of hard hats. 

Not the prettiest of fashion accessories by any means, they have saved many workers from sustaining serious head injuries through no fault of their own, which by the same token, should have reduced the number of them who made a head injury claim in South Derbyshire.

How hard hats have reduced the number of personal injury claims

Hard hats for construction workers were first made by an American, who copied the pattern used for his sons helmets they had worn in war. They soon became a very popular health and safety requirement in the US, and it was not long before they were being used all over the world.

The do a very good job of protecting the workers heads, providing:

  • They are of good quality – there are many fakes on the market that will not give the protection they should, and they should only be purchased from reputable dealers
  • They fit properly – they do come in different sizes, and the hardhat should be a good fir, while leaving room for ear protectors if they are needed
  • They are not second hand – never have a hard hat someone else has used. You will not know the history of the hard hat, and if it has been dropped, its integrity can be compromised. Damaged hard hats should always be discarded.

As a legal requirement to be wearing a hard hat on site, many employers view it a gross misconduct if someone is found without one, and punish it with instant dismissal. Visitors to sites who are not wearing one are usually escorted from the site and not allowed back without one.

One of the regular occurrences on construction sites is things being dropped from height. It does not have to be anything large to gain momentum on its way down, and cause someone a serious injury if it happens to be them it hits. Hard hats have saved many construction workers from being injured in this way, and no doubt have often saved their lives as well.
