Two recent incidents where workers have suffered serious injuries have highlighted the dangers of falls from height. In August 2020, a man sustained serious injury when he fell approximately 2m from a ladder while working at a residential property. Early enquiries indicate he was using a ladder to access the roof area. In a separate incident a month late, a worker fell approximately 3.4m at a construction site. It appears he was helping unload building materials from an elevated position of a partially built structure.
Workplace health and safety alert
The purpose of this safety alert is to highlight the potential for degradation of fibreglass ladders that can lead to a structural failure.
