Falls from height remain the biggest problem on construction sites and on work sites in general, yet still not enough is being done by employers and workers to combat the risks involved with work from heights.

The latest incident involved a man who fell from a ladder in northern New South Wales, suffering head and shoulder injuries as a result.

The man had to be airlifted to hospital following the incident at the Barraba property.

The man was stabilised on site before being transported by Westpac Rescue Helicopter to Tamworth hospital.

According to figures from Safe Work Australia, 46 fatalities occurred as a result of falls from height between 2013 and 2017.
