Every day, 80 workers are injured in a fall – that’s one every 20 minutes. Approximately 17,000 lost-time injuries occur each year because of workplace falls. Two-thirds of fall-related injuries are from slips and trips. Whether it’s a few centimetres or 120 storeys, roughly a third of all injuries and many work-related deaths are the result of falls.
