A hard hat could save your life and prevent the need for an injury claim in Scarcroft
Objects falling on the heads of construction and warehouse workers is very common. Before the introduction of hard hats, many workers lost their lives or became seriously injured because of the lack of protection to their head. The object that hits you does not have to be large — something small falling from height will become lethal; something as small as a screwdriver could kill a person if dropped from the top of a building.
If something hits your head and you are not wearing your hard hat, you may need to make an injury claim in Scarcroft
The use of a hard hat on a building site or in a warehouse is essential to your health and safety. Always make sure that the hard hat you are wearing is of a good quality and fits you properly; a badly fitting one is not much use. The hard hat should be:
- Well fitting and good quality. There are a lot of fakes on the market that give little or no protection. Make sure that yours has the Kitemark.
- In good condition. Once hard hats are damaged, their integrity becomes doubtful and damaged ones should be discarded.
- Not stop the wearing of ear protection.
If your hard hat does not comply and you sustain an injury because of it, you may be able to make an injury claim in Scarcroft.
