It’s tragic that ladder falls are still such a common occurrence and so commonly end in death, despite falls being preventable.

One tragic incident happened late last year when a 21 year old labourer died after falling from a ladder at a residential property.

The man was on a ladder at the time which had been placed against the outside of a single storey property in Bendigo.

The man fell from the ladder and died in hospital the same day.

The incident is being investigating by Work Safe.
