How would you feel if an untrained employee died or was seriously injured falling from a ladder or from working at height?
Falls from height are the number one cause of workplace deaths and one of the main causes of major injury in the workplace. Almost a third of falls are from ladders. We need to realise that using a ladder or a step ladder just isn’t as straight forward as we first thought!
Ladders accounted for 14 fatalities per year to workers (averaged over 6 years) 60% of those killed or seriously injured had fallen from below head height. This is simply a number that is recorded being taken from workplace statistics, many more incidents are occurring in the home; however our legal obligations dictate that it is in the workplace that we must safeguard our employees.
With 1226 (more than 100 a month) Major injuries, falls from ladders and stepladders account for almost a third of all injuries and cost the UK economy around £60 million each year. Source: HSE Gov.uk/statistics
