Why do we need height safety?

Falls from height continue to be one of the most common causes of work place injury and fatality in the UK.

  • One in every threeworkers who had lost their lives at work every year is due to fatal falls.
  • 3,660 people were seriously injured by falls from height in 2007/08. Major injuries included fractured skulls and broken legs. More than half of these injuries were to people working in the service sector, with transport, retail and office workers accounting for over 1,000 major injuries.
  • Construction stands as the top contributor for fall from height fatalities for the past 5 years.
  • More than a 1,000 workers a month suffer serious injury following a slip, trip or fall at work.
  • The Association of British Insurers has stated that £12 Billion is lost every year through accidents, 25% of which is a result of falling from heights.
  • Falls from height continue to be the largest cause of work place deaths and injuries to workers all over the world.

It is an unfortunate fact of life that accidents in the work place do happen. However, many could be avoided if employers and employees paid more attention to Health & Safety regulations. In many cases, relatively simple steps can be taken to help avoid many of these falls and the devastating consequences for those involved.
