A man in his seventies was recently injured after falling from a ladder in south east Queensland.
It is believed the man broke his leg after falling 4 metres from a ladder.
Paramedics treated him on the scene and then transported him to Sunshine Coast University Hospital for further treatment.
This is a common occurrence not only on construction sites but across all industries and very often when people are working at their own homes.
It’s important to exercise safe ladder use, whether at work or home and even if the possible fall is relatively low.
