Every building and construction site should have health and safety rules and regulations, such as hard hats and protective clothing must be worn at all times while you are on site. It does not matter if you are just a visitor to the site, you will have to follow the regulations as well, as these have reduced the number of accidents on construction sites.
A hard hat could save you from a serious head injury, if you were to have an accident that was not your fault. If this happens then you should call the solicitors in Hensol at Accident Advice Helpline so they can help you to make an injury compensation claim.
Avoiding using the solicitors in Hensol
A hard hat may not look the prettiest form of clothing, but could be vital to saving your life if you ever have an accident where your head is injured. It is also to try to prevent an accident from happening to any visitors to the site.
Instant dismissal is what could happen to any employees found not wearing a hard hat on site, and there are signs and posters all over the construction sites, so everyone should know what they should be doing.
Hard hats have done a lot to reduce the number of serious injuries on site, but still too many happen. It could be something quite small dropped from height, and by the time it reaches someone’s head, it will have gained so much momentum it could cause untold damage.
Wearing the right hard hat
You can not just pick up any old hard hat a wear that. It should be:
- A good fit
- In a good condition; damaged ones should be thrown away as their integrity becomes doubtful once damaged
- Not stop the wearing of ear protectors
- Obtained from reputable suppliers as there are fake hard hats on the market
The wearing of a correct fitting, good quality hard hat will save the need to make an injury claim, using the solicitors in Hensol.
