Hard hats have had a big impact on the health and safety in all industries that use them, reducing the number of brain injuries and deaths from head injuries considerably. This, in turn, means fewer victims are injured through no fault of their own, and need to make a personal injury claim in Fenland.
Originally invented by an American who was impressed with the hats his sons came home from war with, they have progressed a great deal to what they are today.
Making sure your hard hat is right so you can avoid making a personal injury claim in Fenland
For your hard hat to be effective it cannot be just any old hard hat; it has to be:
- A good fit, that still allows you to wear ear protectors if you need them.
- A good quality as there are many fakes on the market that will not give the protection they should. Always make sure they are purchased from a reputable dealer.
- Not one that belonged to someone else. The reason for this is that you do 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 and replaced.
Some employers, particularly in the construction industry where wearing a hard hat is compulsory, treat the failure to wear one as gross misconduct, and people lose their jobs for this all the time.
Making a personal injury claim in Fenland for injuries sustained in an accident that was not your fault
Employers in the UK have certain health and safety rules to follow, and one of them is that, free of any charge to the employees, they provide whatever protective clothing and gear are needed to enable the employee to do their job safely.
Although a hard hat is not the prettiest of fashion accessories, it comes under this banner, and if you are injured in an accident because your employer has not complied with health and safety rules, you can claim compensation from them.
