    Background: Brick-proof bowlers (reinforced plastic helmets) boost safety measures at a London building site.

    It's all part of a plan to keep down building costs - working on the policy that fewer injuries mean more working hours.

    The idea came from America and could do a lot to cut down on last year's 1,475 reported accidents on building sites caused by falling objects.
