A Heightened Sense of Risk

One of the more dangerous professions is anyone that involves working with heights. Falls are unfortunately all too common. Even a fall from a height of just over 2 feet carries a major risk of a serious injury.

Health and Safety Executive statistics showed that in the past few years, 46 workers were killed and nearly 2,600 seriously injured due to a fall from height at work. As we've seen, it's not only a matter of how far you've fallen, as many very serious injuries occur by falling through a fragile surface rather than off a high place.

Falls involving ladders account for about a quarter of all falls. If a ladder is to be used in the workplace, then a risk assessment and training are needed. Ladders with dirty and slippery treads, or defective feet or locking mechanisms can also be the cause of falls.
