Falls from height remains one of the biggest causes of death and serious injury to construction workers. Always use the right type of height access equipment for the task and location.
Never take short cuts when working at height. If you hear someone say ‘Why don’t we just?’ - walk away, and if they preface it with ‘I got this great idea’ - run.
