Construction Site Accident / Incident Investigations

Introduction

Construction sites are hazardous by their very nature and various construction site activities occurring on site may result in occasional accident and near miss incidents.

The cost of accidents particularly those resulting in a fatality, major or even a minor injury can be crippling to the Principal Contractors and the Contractors.

Health and Safety Executive (HSE) strongly advises to carrying out a thorough investigation following an accident or a near miss incident to learn from this to prevent costly accidents later.

From our experience, a good third-party independent investigation carried out immediately following an accident or near miss incident on construction site helps the relevant Principal Contractor or Contractor to avoid the reoccurrence and better protect themselves in case of a compensation claim.

Safescope Approach

At SafeScope we assist Principal Contractors and Contractors in carrying out independent and impartial third-party Accident Investigations.

We specialise in CDM and Construction Health and Safety services. We have a thorough understanding of construction health and safety issues and have been dealing with accidents and near miss incidents occurring on construction site since our inception in 2008.

Accidents and near miss incidents on construction sites can be very difficult and traumatic experience for those who are directly involved or witness to the event. Hence, our approach involves helping and assisting the relevant parties as a matter of urgency and aim to visit the relevant construction site as soon as possible. In addition, we help our Clients in fulfilling the legal requirements for reporting certain accidents or near miss incidents to the HSE as required under RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations).

We are based in Ipswich - Suffolk and we have been providing Accident Investigation service to construction related companies in London, East of England (East Anglia), East Midlands, South East Regions and nationally.
