Falls from ladders happen all the time, at home or at work. In construction and in other similar jobs, workers encounter these types of accidents all the time, and the consequences can be terrible. It may cause injuries that can leave the victim with bruises, broken bones, brain damage or even long-term injuries that may affect the everyday life of the victim and his or her family.
Employers must guarantee safe working conditions for all their employees. This means that all the tools workers use must be properly maintained and checked frequently. The same principle applies for the area where they are working. Failure to meet these safety measures may result in a demand where the hiring company may be held responsible.
