Have you ever had a fall from a portable or unsecured ladder at work? Working at height using ladders can be dangerous and can cause serious injury.
Employers have a duty to ensure the safety of their employees by following protective measures of Health and Safety.
Accidents may occur due to several reasons, including:
- Inadequate training to the workers
- Ladder in poor condition
- Defective ladder
- Ladder without correct support
- Uneven surface
- Missing Guardrails
- Overloaded ladder
In these conditions, chances of falling are far greater and could cause anywhere from mild to severe injuries. There have been cases where a fall has caused a severe spine or head injury. In some cases, victims have been left with no choice other than retiring from their job due to the severity of the injuries.
