Hard hats are used in many industries to provide protection to employees.
Hard hats are worn in workplaces where there is a foreseeable risk of injury to workers. This could be from falling objects on a building site, bumping head on piping and scaffolding and debris.
A hard hat is made so that the weight of the helmet is spread across the top of the head. There is a space between the wearer's head and the shell of the helmet. This means that if an object hits the helmet it is less likely that an impact will be transferred to the skull.
A hard hat must be kept in a good condition and it must properly fit every worker.
Head injuries can be very serious and can involve brain injuries. Some accidents can lead to life changing injuries. A single injury can cause a severe disability and can also be fatal.
If you work in an industry such as construction, it is important that you wear a hard hat. Your employer should provide you with a suitable hard hat to protect you from an injury.
A hard hat will protect your major senses such as sight, hearing, smell, speech, taste. This is because it protects your head, ears, mouth, nose and brain.
You can make a claim for injury and you can also claim for any associated losses. Such losses can include loss of earnings, prescription and the cost of care.
If have suffered an injury as a result of not being supplied with a hard hat or a faulty hard hat, you will be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
Graham Coffey & Co. Solicitors have repeatedly succeeded in securing compensation on behalf injured clients.
