How to keep construction workers safe
If you manage a construction site, or have responsibility for ensuring the safety of the workers based on such a site, then you have a lot of things to consider. It is vital, as an employer, that you take all necessary steps to make sure that the work environment is safe. You also have to identify any areas where an accident could occur and do all you can to make sure that, should something happen, employees are kept as free from harm as possible. If you fail in this and someone is injured as a result then they could have a legal right to make a no win no fee* compensation Epsom and Ewell claim against you.
But how do you make sure that the work environment is safe and that employees are not exposed to risk? We accept it is a difficult task, and unfortunately, many people do fail to get it right, which is why Accident Advice Helpline is here to help injured people make no win no fee* compensation Epsom and Ewell claims.
If you want to avoid no win no fee* compensation Epsom and Ewell claims being made against you here are some tips:
- Complete risk assessments – one of the best ways to make sure that all your bases are covered, so to speak, is to carry out risk assessments. These will ensure that you look at all the potential risks posed to employees, and can then identify ways to reduce those risks.
- Complete regular checks – another way to make sure that everything is running smoothly is to conduct regular checks. This is especially true when it comes to looking at scaffolding and hoists in a bid to reduce the risk of falls from height.
- Correct equipment – make sure that your employees have the right equipment to do a job. This can reduce the chance of injuries occurring, especially in the case of manual handling accidents.
- Keep the area clean and tidy – having an untidy work place is always a hazard, but when people might be working with power tools and other dangerous equipment, a simple trip could be disastrous. Do not have items lying around, and make sure that exits are not blocked with debris, rubbish or equipment.
