Construction Season Brings Increased Ladder Accidents

Written by on 6/22/2016 3:44 AM in , , . It has 1 Comments.


In the construction industry, workplace injury prevention can seem like a never ending battle, and with construction season in full swing, on-the-job safety is more important than ever. Have your workers been given the safety training they need to rise above these National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health ladder safety statistics?

• According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 605 workers were killed and an estimated 212,760 workers seriously injured by falls to the same or lower level in 2009.

• Worker’s comp and medical costs related to fall injuries cost approximately $70 million annually in the U.S.

• The highest frequency of fall-related fatalities was experienced by the construction industry, which joins the health services and the wholesale and retail industries as at the highest risk for nonfatal fall injuries.

What can you do to prevent your employees from adding to these statistics?

• Identify risks.
Fall incidents typically involve:

  • Slippery, cluttered, or unstable surfaces.
  • Unprotected edges.
  • Floor holes and wall openings
  • Unsafely positioned ladders.
  • Misused protective equipment.

• Promote safe practices.
It may sound obvious, but persistent, unsafe practices are one of the major contributors to fall incident rates. Successful reduction is not only the burden of regulatory agencies and safety professionals, but also industry leaders, professional associations and unions, employers, and employees.

Promoting a culture of safety through the continuous education of your workforce is essential to preventing fall-related injuries, as are effective protective technologies and staying current on the latest fall prevention techniques.

Don’t throw caution to the wind when it comes to workplace injury prevention. Stay in-the-know, with the help of workplace safety experts at Minnesota Comp Advisor. Contact us today.
