Ladder Fall Lands NSW Man in Hospital

The risk associated with the use of ladders is often underestimated and most people become complacent about ladder safety which is why we see so many ladder related injuries especially at home and on the job site.

Another ladder incident has taken place in south-eastern New South Wales and resulted in pelvic injuries for one worker who had to be airlifted to hospital.

The accident occurred just south of Nowra recently when the man fell 2 metres from the ladder and had to be flown to St George Hospital for treatment.

In the construction industry, falls from heights are responsible for 96 fatalities over the last decade to 2016. It is the main cause of fatalities in the construction and construction services industries.
