Falls are the leading cause of death in many industries. Almost half of all fatal falls happen to workers within their first six months on the job and a quarter of them happen on small jobs including 12 or fewer employees. The surface an individual falls from doesn’t even have to be very high to cause a serious injury, half of the fall-related deaths are from heights of less than 25 feet. This is why workers, especially those working in industries with high rates of injuries should be educated on proper fall protection.
