If you have been injured in a fall from height in the workplace we can help. Our experienced workplace compensation solicitors have claimed thousands of pounds in compensation for employees injured in falls from scaffolding and ladders.
To claim compensation for a fall from a fall from height at work, you must be able to prove that:
Falls from height are one of the most common types of injury suffered at work and the injuries which result are often among the most serious. These include:
Among the employees most at risk are construction workers, roofers, warehouse operatives and window cleaners. As well as falls from ladders, such employees are at risk of falling from scaffolding, racking, stairs, ledges or through windows, skylights or fragile surfaces.
Employees working at height are protected by the Working at Height regulations. These regulations are designed to ensure that employers take all necessary steps to safeguard their employees while they are at work.
These regulations protect any employees working above ground level, from those using machinery or scaffolding, to those tasked with seemingly straightforward tasks such as changing a lightbulb.
Employers are obliged to provide tools and materials, including ladders which are in good working order as well as appropriate safety equipment. In addition, dangerous areas should be appropriately signposted and guarded.
Employees should also be trained in working at height, including in the safe use of ladders and safety equipment.
