Construction can be a dangerous industry, but it’s up to employers to ensure their team of contractors are safe – this means ensuring that equipment is safe to use and that staff have received the proper training to carry out their job safely. If you’re a contractor and you have been injured in an accident on a construction site then you might find you could make an injury claim in Alloa, provided it’s been three years or less since your accident. If your employer or even a colleague is to blame for your accident, you could get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline rather than suffering in silence.
