Chipping Norton council is to fund the renovation costs to repair the Town Hall’s roof. As injury claim lawyers, who are frequently involved in dealing with injuries as a result of falls from height, Accident Advice Helpline will be on standby if needed, just in case anyone does indeed become injured.
Falls from low height can cause injury
Falls from height can happen anytime anyone is working just a few feet off the ground. Even falling from a short pair of stepladders can cause a nasty injury if the victim lands awkwardly, or if they have a condition such as osteoporosis (the brittle bone disease).
Many injuries happen at home, and are often down to carelessness on behalf of the victim. This type of accident does not unfortunately qualify for compensation. Compensation can only be claimed where the fault for the accident/incident is down to a third party.
Dos and don’ts
For working at height in the workplace, the HSE has published the Work at Height Regulations 2005. They also have a specific work at height website. Here’s some advice the HSE publish:
- Where possible, work from the ground
- Ensure safe access to and from the work platform
- Ensure suitable equipment is available and is used
- Put precautions in place when working in the fragile services
- Protect those below from falling objects
- Consider rescue procedures
