A man was working in a warehouse in Qormi, Malta when he fell, getting seriously injured. What could have caused this accident? Let’s go over a couple of potential reasons for the accident and how to prevent them.

Tying Off

Some industries require workers standing above two or three feet to tie off. When tied off properly, a worker’s fall can be prevented. The Cage ladder line is also designed to comply with tie-off rules and to prevent falls.

Overreaching

Over reaching is one of the most common causes of ladder-related accidents and is actually easy to prevent. Follow the belt buckle rule and keep your body between the rungs.

Using the Wrong Ladder for the Job

Using the wrong size or wrong type of ladder for a job is sure to cause an accident. Choose a ladder that is tall enough for the job at hand to prevent an unnecessary accident.
