About scaffolding accidents

If you work in the construction industry, one of the biggest risks to your health and safety will likely be working at height, and on scaffolding. While there is always an increased risk of injury for those working at height, many construction accidents of this nature are caused by a lack of appropriate safety procedures, or a failure to follow those safety procedures.

Your employer has a responsibility to ensure your safety at work. This includes things such as providing proper training, as well as routine inspections and maintenance of the equipment you are using. 

Some of the most common scaffolding accidents and their resulting injuries include:

  • Broken bones, spinal and head injuries caused by falling from height.
  • Crushing injuries after being involved in the collapse of scaffolding.
  • Head injuries after being struck by falling tools, work material and debris.
  • Electrocution and burn injuries due to close proximity to overhead power lines.
  • Insecure bracing.
  • Poor standard of construction materials, which can be responsible for many different injuries.

Work at Height Regulations

The Work at Height Regulations came into effect in 2005 and apply to all tasks carried out at height where there is risk of a fall. Employers who follow and enforce these guidelines can reduce the number of occupational hazards; however, those who neglect the regulations risk a dangerous workplace injuries to their employees and the resultant compensation claims from injured staff.
