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 very serious injuries. Many people blame themselves for falling from the ladder as mostly a disturbance in balance. However, a ladder may be faulty and the fall may be caused by the employer's negligence.
Working on ladders can be dangerous and Height Regulations were introduced to ensure the safety of professionals working with ladders. As per the heights regulation Act, the employer has a duty to assess the risks before sending an employee up a ladder. The employer has to assess all risks involved at work, draw up safety plans, and supervise the work which takes place. The employer should also provide safety equipment like helmets to avoid injury to the head in case of falling from the ladder.
You can file a compensation claim against the employer if your employer fails in this duty of care towards you. There may be many reasons for fall from a ladder:
