Another fall from height has taken place at a worksite, this time in Pennant Hills.

A 45 year old man had to be transported to hospital after falling through a roof, it is believed he was replacing skylight sheeting at the time when he fell 3 metres onto the deck below.

The incident caused injuries to his head and limb and he was transported to Westmead Hospital in a stable condition.

Falls remain the main cause of injury on worksites and yet they are avoidable. Let’s work to make the rest of the year a safe one by ensuring fall protection measures are taken whenever working from heights, even if the potential fall height seems relatively low – falls from even a low height can cause serious injury.
