    In the UK at the minute there is lots of building work going on, so lots of construction sites are popping up everywhere. A construction site is classed as one of the most dangerous places to work in the country, the only other industries being as hazardous are warehousing and farming.

    If you become injured through no fault of your own, in an  accident anywhere, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim, and using the solicitors in Kings Cross and Euston to help you.

    Compensation claims solicitors in Kings Cross and Euston

    Health and safety on construction sites, have been stepped up over the past 20 years, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) being much stricter these days and their measures have helped. Although even today, too many accidents still happen in all employments, which means that to many workers are being injured or even killed.

    Wearing a hard hat could save you from getting a serious head injury if you work on a building site and even save you life, and of course stop you from needing to use the solicitors in Kings Cross and Euston.

    It is illegal to go on to a building site without a hard hat, and without first having been given instructions in the health and safety measures of the site. Many construction companies treat not wearing a hard hat as gross misconduct if the culprit is an employee, usually punished with instant dismissal.  If visitors or anyone else is found on site not wearing a hard hat, they are usually ejected and not allowed to return until they have one.

    How to look after your hard hat

    Your hard hat shouldn’t just be any old hard hat, it should be one that fits you correctly and  should be of good quality. Cutting corners by buying the cheap fakes that are on the market could cost someone their life, so always make sure carries the safety kite mark. If it becomes damaged in any way, and just by dropping it on the floor will do this, the integrity can be compromised and it should be discarded and replaced with a new one.

    Never buy one second hand because you cannot be sure of its history, and whether it will actually give you any protection.
