    Faulty Ladder at Work


    It’s amazing how what seems like a perfectly normal and uneventful day can suddenly take a dramatic turn for the worse because of the simplest of things. A good example is the dramatic effects that can ensue following an accident due to a faulty ladder at work, which can turn someone’s life upside down in a matter of seconds. From being a happy and healthy employee one minute, a faulty ladder at work can cause no end of pain and make a person unable to work for weeks or maybe even months on end.

    A Faulty Ladder at Work Is Not Your Fault

    Your initial reaction to a fall from a ladder may well be one of embarrassment, especially if climbing ladders is a day to day occurrence in your line of work, but if the ladder was faulty then the whole situation was far beyond your control, even before you stepped on the first rung. Employers have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their workers in the workplace, and if they supply you with a faulty ladder at work then they are shirking this responsibility to a disturbing degree. Whether the ladder was damaged, poorly maintained or simply not fit for purpose, you were put at risk by having to use it and could be eligible to receive compensation to help with medical costs and possible loss of earnings.
