Construction sites pose the potential to be dangerous workplaces, especially when employers aren’t taking the right precautions. If you have had an accident then you may well need to gain access to the services of a solicitor in Betws-Yn-Rhos.
Employers are bound to ensure the safety of all staff at all times, and must adhere to many safety regulations to administer the correct training, ensure equipment is safe for use and that all staff are wearing the appropriate apparel. When an employer fails to do this, accidents can occur and injure construction workers in the process.
Statistics from the Health and Safety Executive reveal that the construction industry is the most dangerous for employees in Britain, accounting for 10% of all major injuries a year, and over 22% of fatal injuries a year. In March 2012-2013, 39 people lost their lives while at work on a construction site.
Accident Advice Helpline was founded in 2000 with a view to helping innocent employees receive financial compensation. We are here for you, and if you’ve been hurt in a construction accident, a personal injury solicitor in Betws-Yn-Rhos can help.
