    Construction sites are by their very nature dangerous, noisy and busy workplaces. Often large scale equipment, heavy moving machinery and large scale building materials are being moved around the site, which may also be muddy and waterlogged.

    If you have sustained injuries as a result of a construction-related accident that occurred through no fault of your own within the last three years, then you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    Keeping safe while working on site

    It is your employer’s or main contractor’s responsibility to ensure that all employees are safe while working on site. This is a statutory obligation that falls under health and safety legislation. For construction workers, this means that:

    • They are provided with a safety hard hat which meets current regulations for safety, and that it is worn at all times;
    • They are provided with safety protection footwear to prevent injuries to the feet;
    • They wear high visibility jackets while on site to ensure that they are clearly visible to other employees;
    • They are provided with ear defenders, eye protection and protective gloves if they require them to carry out their job safely;
    • They are trained and supervised thoroughly when working to ensure safe practice;
    • Any tools and equipment that are operated are regularly checked and maintained to ensure that they are in good working order and safe to use;
    • Safety barriers and signs are clearly displayed to protect pedestrians and ensure that walkways are kept separate from areas of heavy moving equipment and machinery; and
    • Any accidents or incidents are reported promptly to the main contractor to ensure that they are correctly processed, and medical attention is sought immediately.
