When it comes to workplace injuries, falls from height are still one of the most common causes; with such injuries often occurring as a result of employers failing to conduct adequate risk assessments or employees carrying out work at height, without having the necessary safeguards in place.
Compensation for Falls from Height at Work
Statistics have revealed that this month alone (May 2013), there have been no fewer than five companies brought to court by the Health and Safety Executive, following serious breaches of working at height laws.
In addition, additional statistics show that during 2011 / 2012, there were over 3,400 reported serious injuries following a fall from height within the workplace.
