The construction industry in the UK is notorious for the number of accidents that happen on site, only farming being any worse. Over the last two decades great strides have been made in the health and safety on building sites. This is mainly due to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the large construction employer’s co-operating to make them safer places to be. If you work in the industry, and are injured through no fault of your own, Stockton-On-Tees no-win, no-fee lawyers may be able to help you claim the compensation you are entitled to.
Two million hard hats
There are over two million workers in the construction industry, making it the largest employer in the country. One of the measures that were introduced was the compulsory wearing of hard hats. Really this is something so simple, but they have saved the lives of many building workers, and prevented many others from sustaining serious injuries.
In fact this one health and safety measure alone was so successful that many employers now treat it as gross misconduct to be found on site without one, punishable by instant dismissal.
In spite of the success of hard hats though, workers are still injured on construction sites all the time. Even a small object falling from height will gain momentum as it falls, and cause a lot of damage wherever it lands. If that happens to be on one of the employees, they can suffer serious injuries.
Then there is the site traffic to contend with, the huge machinery that is used, floors and trenches not secured, unsafe scaffold and a whole host of other things that could very easily cause a worker to be injured through no fault of their own.
