Recently, I ran across an article about a farmer who fell from height and ended up passing away from his injuries.

 

After sharing the details from the accident, the author shared some ladder safety tips. Here are some of the author’s tips for preventing accidents like this one:

-Use safe systems  when working at heights.

-Proper roofing ladder should always be used.

-Ladders used should be in good condition, placed at the right angle and securely tied.

-Be aware of fragile roof lights/panels.

-Erect a suitable barrier to prevent falls while carrying out extensive work on roofs.

-Consider using competent construction contractors for all work at height.
