A worker has been injured after falling from a ladder on a Queensland work site.

The man was rushed to Princess Alexandra Hospital via RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter in a stable condition after hitting his head in a ladder fall incident at his worksite south-west of Gatton.

Ladder falls are the most common causes of falls from height and falls from height are the most common form of accidents on work sites, despite the fact that these incidents are avoidable with the proper protection.

In 2016, there were 25 workers killed as a result of a falls from height, so it’s obvious this is an area that requires attention.
