If you are expected to use scaffolding at work, then it should be constructed correctly by someone who is qualified and is therefore safe to use. If you do suffer an accident due to poorly constructed scaffolding, then a scaffolding accident claim may be possible with the help of the Accident Advice Bureau.
There has been such an accident reported recently. It involves a building company with two self-employed bricklayers working for it, who fell from scaffolding.
The contractors were working at a new small housing development. One of the workers had opened the scaffold’s loading gate ready for new mortar to be lifted up to a co-worker, when they both felt the scaffold shaking.
The shaking caused them both to fall into the first floor of the house, one of the workers suffered severe bruising, damage to his hip, pelvis, neck and cuts to his stomach, face and arms and the other worker suffered damage to his neck, back and bruises to his leg, face, shoulder and arms.
Health and safety investigated and found that although the company had a policy of installing nets when installing roof trusses, there was no such protection in place in the area where the men fell from a height. The company were fined and ordered to pay costs.
