About demolition accidents

Sites such as nuclear power plants, chemical works, gasworks, mines and factories all contain specialist technology and substances, including chemicals, radioactive materials, asbestos and explosives. As such, their dismantlement and demolition should never be undertaken with a "wrecking ball" approach. To do so may risk an event such as a nuclear meltdown, chemical leak, asbestos exposure or a serious explosion.

Because of these risks, every aspect of a demolition or dismantlement must be carefully planned and choreographed, with full risk assessments and training provided for those involved.

Common causes of demolition accidents

Injuries and deaths caused by demolition accidents are usually caused by premature explosions, the premature collapse of buildings and falls from height from scaffolding. Injuries can also occur when workers are not prepared for a detonation and the force or surprise of the explosion.

Employers must ensure the safety of all workers by implementing detailed safety procedures and providing extensive training. Areas should be thoroughly checked before detonations and enough time must be given to workers to evacuate a site.

Who is responsible?

In the event that employers or managers fail to ensure workers receive necessary training, protective equipment or risk assessments and injury consequently occurs, those affected can contact solicitors to discuss a compensation claim.
