Sometimes looking at statistics is a good reminder for why we need to help others learn ladder safety. Here are some of the common statistics:
-43% of all fatal falls involve a ladder
-Men and Hispanics had higher rates of fatal and nonfatal ladder injuries compared with women and non-Hispanic whites and workers of other races/ethnicities.
-Ladder fall injuries increase as the worker’s age increases
-The construction industry had the highest rates of ladder-related injuries compared to all other injuries.
