Construction Sites: Employers’ Obligations
Construction sites are fraught with hazards such as collapsing trenches, falls from height, being hit by vehicles on site and tripping on materials left lying around on untidy and poorly managed sites. Workers can be exposed to harmful substances such as asbestos, carbon monoxide and skin or respiratory irritants. Other hazards include vibrating equipment and excessive noise causing hearing loss. If you work on a construction site there is a high risk of sustaining an injury or illness and for this reason, those responsible for the site are under strict legal duties to ensure workers do not face unnecessary danger.
The Health and Safety Executive is responsible for monitoring a whole host of legislation designed to protect construction site workers from being injured by falls, faulty machinery, falling objects, reversing vehicles, hazardous substances, trips, slips or electrocution. Despite this, unfortunately dangerous practices are still common on many construction sites. Accidents are in most cases preventable and all too often are the fault of employers or contractors who fail to minimise risks, which means victims have a right to be compensated.
