West Lindsey is one of many local government districts across England. In this case, it is located in Lincolnshire, towards the northern reaches of the county over on the west side. Around 91,000 people call this area home, some of whom work locally as well. As is the case in many parts of the UK, some of those individuals work in the building industry, working on maintenance and repair jobs as well as new construction jobs. Even though construction is one of the more demanding industries to work in, it is still unlikely any construction worker would make an incident at work claim in West Lindsey.
There are many measures that go into making sure every construction site – small or large – is as safe as it can possibly be. If you have ever walked past a construction site, you’ll know the signs that are posted outside, warning of the need to wear hard hats and to report to the site manager on arrival. These are there for safety’s sake.
Making sure you are safe when working on a building site
If your job requires you to work on a construction site, you will probably already be aware of the importance of health and safety. Wearing a hard hat, steel toe-capped boots and being trained to do whatever job is asked of you are all very important elements you need to keep in mind if you are working in this environment.
While it pays to keep your wits about you, you may still be involved in an accident if the health and safety standards on the building site are not as good as they should be. You may have seen something happen to someone else; on the other hand, perhaps you were the person to be hurt.
Could you claim?
An incident at work claim in West Lindsey could potentially be put forward in the event you have been injured in a situation that was not of your own making. You must still prove someone else was negligent, but Accident Advice Helpline may be able to assist you with that.
