Construction accident claims

Health and Safety is important in every workplace but Construction is a sector which has historically a higher rate of accidents than others areas of work.

Progress has been made in improving practices and safety and, overall, workplace accidents numbers have levelled off and started to decrease according to the Health and Safety Executive.

Rate of construction accidents

The same statistics however show that a statistically significantly higher rate of injuries is reported in Construction sector than in any other industry.

We know the impact that a workplace accident can have on individuals and families and have substantial experience on helping people who have been injured at work.

Regulations to protect construction workers

There are various regulations in place covering construction health and safety.

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 were introduced in April 2015 (replacing the original 2007 version) and aim to integrate health and safety into the management of any construction project and to encourage everyone involved to work together to improve the planning and management of construction projects from the very start.

Working at Height

The Work at Height Regulations 2005 require employers to ensure that work carried out at a height is properly planned, appropriately supervised and carried out in as safe as way as is practical.

Duty of Care: Dangerous weather

Employers often argue that the primary cause of a work accident is something beyond anyone’s control, for example severe weather conditions, for which they cannot be held responsible.

However, that is not always the case. Employers have a general duty to take reasonable care for the safety of employees. Employers are obliged to carry out a suitable and sufficient assessment of risks to employees in their undertaking.
