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.

Statistics showed that in the past year, over 50 workers were killed and nearly 3,000 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, for any reason, even if it is getting the Christmas decorations out once a year, 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.
