Falls continue to be the biggest cause of fatal injury in Britain’s workplaces, with 34 of the 72 worker deaths in construction in 2007/08(p) resulting from a fall from height. On top of this, over 4,000 major injuries such as broken bones or fractured skulls are reported to HSE each year by the construction industry. Over half of these serious injuries involve falls from height or from tripping over materials on walkways and are easily preventable.
