Accidents involving workers falling from height are one of the main causes of serious injuries the workplace. Falls from ladders, roofs and scaffolding platforms frequently result in serious head injuries, multiple fractures, internal injuries or even fatal injuries. HSE records indicate that these accidents are particularly common amongst construction workers, roof workers, joiners, warehouse workers and drivers and because working at height is so dangerous there are strict regulations which oblige employers to take extra care for the safety of their workers.
Wherever possible an employer should avoid the need for workers to work at height. And where that can’t be avoided the employer should ensure that there is careful planning, a safe means of access, proper training and proper supervision.
If a worker is badly injured or even killed as a result of an accident where these regulations have not been followed there is likely to be a strong case for claiming compensation for the injured worker or his/her family.
