The HSE have advised that during 2007/8, 58 workers died and over 3,500 suffered serious injury.
In its drive to reduce these avoidable accidents the HSE is again running its Ladder Exchange Initiative which will run from the 1st September to 31st December 2009.
If you have bent, broken or battered ladders, you can part exchange them for a new one using one of the HSE’s key partners.
Its easy to get involved, just follow this link to find all the details of who the key partner’s are and access more HSE advice on preventing accidents and incidents whilst using ladders.
Safety is not expensive, it’s priceless.
