You can make an Injury Claim in North Acton due to having an accident whilst working in the construction trade.
North Acton is within the London Borough of Ealing in the UK. The area is probably best known for its long term association with the British Broadcasting Corporation. The BBC main rehearsal studios and costume collection were located in North Acton for many decades, and BBC Television Centre was just a short tube journey away in White City.
In recent years, the British Broadcasting Company decided to relocate its services in North Acton and close Television Centre. With the demolition of buildings such as the costume store, North Acton has seen the development of a range of new high-rise residential and commercial properties. The release of brownfield sites with the potential for new investment has created work within the construction industry, and many builders have benefited by the opportunity to work on new projects.
Like any industry, the construction trade is bound by health and safety rules and guidelines. These mean employers are responsible for minimising the risks that could lead to death and serious injury for their employees. If an accident has taken place on site, and you feel as though your employer has not taken necessary regard to safety, then you could be entitled to make an injury claim in North Acton.
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 must be followed whilst undertaking all building and civil engineering construction work. The Approved Code of Practice is a legal requirement for all those involved within construction. Here is a list of typical considerations identified by the Health and Safety Executive as needing to be considered when managing construction work:
- Site organisation.
- Slip, trips and falls.
- Working at height.
- Structural stability.
- Mobile plant and vehicles.
