    The serious nature of fall from height injuries

    The most frequent cause of accidental deaths in the workplace are falls from height. After slips, trips and falls (on level ground), the fall from height accident is also the most common cause of serious injury. The sad thing is that this type of accident is easily preventable. It simply means carrying out comprehensive risk assessments before any work is commenced, and ensuring the right safety precautions are put in place.

    Working on a roof 6 metres above ground level without safety protection

    A poultry firm in Lincolnshire, together with 4 of its contractors, was recently fined for unsafe work practices relating to working at height. On an unscheduled visit to site, an HSE inspector discovered a number of contract workers carrying out work on the roof without any safety precautions having been put in place. As the roof was 6 metres above the ground any resultant fall would have produced serious injury or death.

    Inspector issued Prohibition Notice

    The HSE inspector recorded that there was no edge protection in place. In addition, no scaffolding had been erected. The workers gained access to the roof via an unsecured ladder. The inspector produced a Prohibition Notice preventing any further work from taking place until suitable edge protection was installed.

    Work recommenced without edge protection in place

    The inspector returned to site 3 days later to discover that although a scaffold tower had been put in position, and 12 airbags were positioned on the floor, at either end of the building, no edge protection was in evidence. When the inspector returned to site several hours later that day, it was to discover 2 employees on the roof, although the scaffold tower had been disassembled. Enforcement notices were then put in place.
