    Safety on building sites, and when to claim compensation through a law firm

    Obviously, working on a building site presents a great deal more hazards and concerns than working in an office. However, you should be given plenty of training before you are allowed to start work, to prevent you from running into any serious problems or becoming injured. Despite this, whether you are new to the job or have been working in construction for a long time, it is easy to get a little lax with your safety measures, which can easily lead to problems. Here are some general tips for being safe on a building site:

    • Wear your helmet. There is a reason that people on building sites need to wear hard hats at all times, and this is to prevent them from being badly injured or even killed if something goes wrong. You will be given a hard hat on your first day at work. Make sure that you always have it on you, whenever you enter the site.
    • Wear a fluorescent jacket. A fluorescent jacket is used to help you to stand out on the site, so that other people on the site can see you and you won’t be involved in any accidents. Always make sure you are as visible as possible.
    • Don’t do anything for which you aren’t trained. A manager may ask you to go and do a quick task from time to time, but if you aren’t trained for it and don’t really know what you are doing, you should always say no and ask to be assigned to another task.
    • Work as a team. You are all working on the building site together, so don’t try to be Superman and do one task entirely on your own. Get others to help you out in your tasks to make them easier and safer.
