DONT VALUE LIFE CHEAPER THAN AN IPAF TRAINING COURSE!
Provisional figures show that 58 people died from a fall from height at work in 2007/08. Falls from height remain the most common kind of accident causing fatal injuries.
The number of fatalities in 2006/07 has been confirmed at 52, the provisional figure was 45.
Provisional figures (3623) for major injuries to workers in 2007/8P show that they accounted for about 12% of all major injuries, but continued the downward trend shown in recent years.
Falls from ladders resulted in 16 deaths and 1146 major injuries, amounting to over a quarter of all major injuries as a result of a fall from height.
It is vital that all workers at height have received the correct training and demonstrated competence by attending a suitable IPAF Training Course. Blade Access can provide IPAF training throughout the UK at one of our selected depots or alternatively on site should it be required. All we ask is that a suitable training room is provided – we will take care of everything else!
