Inevitably there is an element of risk associated with many occupations, but some workers are subject to a greater chance of harm due to the nature of their career. Working at height is a feature of many industrial occupations, and is unfortunately the leading cause of fatalities among work place accidents.
Despite the attempt to sufficiently reduce the risk through the introduction of various regulations in an attempt to monitor safety standards, 29% of work place fatalities were caused by an employee falling from a height. If you believe a breach of these safeguards resulted in you sustaining an injury you may be eligible to pursue a personal injury claim.
