Falling from height is one of the main causes of injury in the NSW construction industry.
Over the past four years, more than 2500 workers have fallen from a height on NSW construction sites. Six died, 52 were permanently disabled and more than 300 were off work for over six months.
One worker fell from a scaffold to the ground while climbing to another place of work, another fell through an asbestos roof while repairing it. Yet another fell when the suspended working platform he was working on tilted. And still another lost his footing and fell under a stairway’s top and only handrail, landing on a concrete floor three metres below and suffering serious injuries.
And on and on it goes.
So many sorry tales. So many avoidable incidents.
Don’t be the next statistic. It’s so simple to stay safe.
