Working in the construction industry is one of the most dangerous and physically demanding of jobs.
Construction workers often rely heavily on their physical abilities to gain and keep employment. As a result, if a construction worker sustains injury this can have devastating effects on their working and family life.
Unfortunately, in some construction sectors, a macho culture has developed which encourages constructions workers to accept poor health and safety practices and the flouting of rules and regulations designed specifically to protect them.
If managers and employers ignore the rules and regulations in place to protect construction workers and a worker sustains injury there may be reasonable grounds for a compensation claim.
In addition to other general health and safety regulations which are designed to provide protection for construction workers the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, were introduced and came into force on the 6th April 2007, specifically to improve health and safety within the construction industry specifically.
