    Ladder Fall Compensation

    The risk of falling from a ladder

    Ladder Fall Compensation
    There are many jobs or professions where one has to use ladders, and there involves a risk of falling from heights. And falling from a ladder can result from mild injuries to severe injuries. Many people blame themselves for falling from the ladder due to a mere imbalance. However, a ladder might be faulty, and the employer’s negligence might have caused the fall.

    The laws covering the use of ladders at work

    Working on ladders can be dangerous, and Height Regulations were introduced to ensure professionals working with ladders. As per the heights regulation Act, the employer must assess the risks before sending an employee up a ladder. The employer has to consider all risks involved at work, draw up safety plans, and supervise the work. The employer should also provide safety equipment like helmets to avoid injury to the head if falling from the ladder.
