Falls from height ……and the story continues
Thursday 27th October: A 16-year-old boy fell seven-metre at a construction site on Thursday in Canberra
Friday 28th October: A tradie in Sydney fell 10 Metres from scaffolding
My colleague Keith Jonson, an expert witness who investigates incident/ accident investigation of human factors impacting on fatalities, provided me with sad but true statistical analysis. He constructed the mechanism of fatalities in the Australian Construction Industry covering 2003-2015. Note that falls from height is the single biggest factor for this period.
