Height-related work is a leading cause of serious injury and death in Australia, with a majority of fatalities occurring in the construction industry. It’s inevitable that workers will be exposed to these risks on a daily basis, which emphasises the importance of building a height safety culture in the Australian workforce.
If the correct height safety practices are not researched thoroughly and incorporated by an experienced height safety expert, fall-related fatalities and injuries will be an ongoing concern in Australia.
