Electrical injury on a construction site? Find out how to get legal help in Seaton today
Although, over the last two decades the construction industry has been subjected to rigorous and widespread changes in legislation regarding the health and safety of workers on site, accidents still happen to construction workers. Talk to us today if you’ve been wondering how to get legal help in Seaton.
Due to the nature of construction sites, the workers are particularly vulnerable to injury, because of the nature of the heavy duty machinery that is used on site, both on the ground and at height. In addition, the use of construction materials which can be both heavy and dangerous to move can mean that accidents occur and serious injuries are sustained.
Keeping safe whilst working in construction
Working safely with electricity is paramount, because there is no warning before electrocution occurs as electricity cannot be seen, smelt, heard or felt. Safe working with electricity involves:
- Ensuring that electrical appliances are checked and maintained.
- Never working on live systems unless a competent and authorised person is instructed to.
- When working near overhead power lines, work should be planned to avoid accidental contact or close proximity of power lines.
- When working with electrical systems in buildings, work should be planned, monitored and managed to ensure that safety is paramount and workers are not exposed to electrical injury.
- When working near underground electrical cables, the work should be carefully planned and detailed plans and safe digging should be adhered to. Cable locating devices should be used to inform workers of the underground cabling.
