    Personal injury compensation claims in Broadland

    There is one occupation that is common throughout the UK and that is construction work. As we emerge from the recent recession, the UK construction market is getting back on its feet and personal injury compensation claims in Broadland relating to construction accidents are set to rise. Perhaps you have already been injured in this sort of accident and want to find out more about starting a claim. Here we give you some more information so that you can get started.

    Personal injury compensation claims in Broadland and construction work

    The construction industry is now heavily regulated and health and safety procedures on construction sites have improved greatly over the last few decades. However, the construction industry is still well-known for its high accident rates and a proportion of these accidents are caused by employers.

    There are several duties of care that apply to an employer on a construction site. They should protect their employee’s safety by making sure that a thorough risk assessment is carried out for every job. This will highlight all the potential hazards and allow appropriate safety measures to be devised. They should also devise safe systems of work and make sure that protective equipment is supplied and worn when needed. They should also provide appropriate training and supervision and make sure that the risk assessment is regularily revised.

    Some of the key safety hazards on construction sites can be summarised as:

    1. Falls from a height
    2. Machinery accidents
    3. Slips, trips and falls
    4. Trench and structure collapses
    5. Vehicular accidents
    6. Chemical incidents
    7. Electrical incidents
