There has been a 50% drop in the number of safety visits to construction sites in Scotland in the last year, leading to concerns about the number of workers who could suffer serious injuries.

In the UK alone, construction injuries are one of the most common workplace accidents with thousands of employees seriously injured as a result. However, according to figures, the UK government have drastically cut the number of inspections in Scotland and other areas of the country.

Scotland had a cut of almost 50% with England having a cut in the number of inspections by less than 5%.

"Signifiant Reduction" in Random Safety Checks

In 2012/13 there were 1248 proactive inspections carried out by the Executive, however, recent data showed that this had fallen to 552 - a 55.7% reduction.

The number of inspections that resulted in enforcement action against employers also fell from 156 to 108. In 2012/13.

Professor Andrew Watterson, who is part of the Occupational and Environmental Health Research Group at Stirling University, said: “For employees in the construction industry, even the person in the street knows they face major work safety as well occupational-ill health dangers. It is therefore deeply disappointing to see the numbers of pro-active inspections of construction sites by HSE in Scotland cut so dramatically between 2011 and 2015.”

He added: “ HSE increasingly looks and sounds like a toothless tiger – a lot of noise and increasingly little action”.

A spokesperson for the HSE said: “Construction is a sector HSE treats as a priority. HSE’s work with the industry follows a national plan, and we have teams of construction specialists across Great Britain.

“Inspection and enforcement, while important, are part of a much wider mix of approaches for improving health and safety standards in construction. Focusing solely on inspection numbers, therefore, gives an inaccurate picture and does not reflect all the work being carried out by others. In addition to inspection, HSE investigates accidents, cases of ill health, and concerns about unsafe construction activities.”

A new report has found that drivers from Glasgow are joint-first in being the most likely to be involved in a car accident when abroad.

A study, which questioned more than 1,500 drivers,  found that drivers from Plymouth and Glasgow were the most likely to be involved in an accident abroad, with two-thirds of drivers from both cities struggling to deal with the loss of orientation.

As well as finding that Glasgow drivers were likely to cause road traffic accidents, the study also revealed that around half of drivers from Scotland’s largest city did not feel comfortable with the different road signs. The vast majority of all drivers from the UK admitted that they did not look up the Highway Code of the country they were visiting.

Study Findings Into Road Traffic Accidents Abroad

While some accidents were most likely to be caused by Glasgow drivers, 4 in every ten accidents were due to British drivers getting confused with driving on the right side of the road. 40% of accidents being caused either by driving on the wrong side of the road, or taking the wrong lane.

Alarmingly, drivers aged between the age of 24-34 were the most likely to be involved in such accidents, with more than 50% admitting to being confused between the different sides of the roads to drive on.

Accident Abroad: Making a Personal Injury Claim

Although some UK drivers were responsible for their accident and injury according to the study, sadly, many drivers are often injured abroad through no fault of their own. Just because an accident occurs outside of the UK does not mean that you cannot claim compensation.

A recent study has revealed that there is no link between preventing head injuries and wearing a safety helmet when cycling.

Indeed, a new report failed to find a link between legislation that makes bicycle helmets mandatory and a drop in head injury rates. The study compared rates seen in five years in regions of Canada where helmets were mandatory and areas where they were not. Academics found that those who wore a helmet were just as likely to suffer a head injury as those who did not.

Head Injuries When Cycling

Many experts have criticised mandatory helmet laws stating that there is no correlation between head injuries and not wearing a helmet with experts stating that speed and the type of collision would have more effect on such injuries.

However, despite the findings, celebrities and professional cyclists were quick to question the survey with many stating that such protective gear had undoubtedly saved their lives. Due to the vulnerable nature of cycling on the roads, it is likely that many cyclists will be injured with head injuries being one of the most common types of injury.

Head Injuries: Claiming Compensation

If you have suffered a head injury, it is imperative that you seek medical advice to ensure that there is no serious damage as a result of your head knock. Seeking medical assistance can ensure that your injuries are monitored and that there is suitable evidence of your injury to use if making a personal injury claim.

Due to the serious nature of head injuries, such claims can be worth significantly more than other types of claims, however, as a result of this, it is imperative to have as much evidence as possible and use a solicitor to build the strongest possible claim.
