Scaffolding Accident Claims

UK’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE) figures indicate that the construction industry is the industrial sector with the leading number of fatalities.

Although authorities support the progression of safety measures within this sector by conducting unannounced inspections on construction sites, the risk of getting injured still exists for all the workers involved.

Causes of Scaffolding Accidents

Falling from scaffolding structures is one the most common causes of injury and death in scaffolding accidents. About 28% of the scaffolding accidents are the result of construction deficiencies, such as:

  • Using substandard components
  • Structural failures
  • Omitting essential parts
  • Assembly errors
