Preventing Falls from Height - radio advertisement transcript
No one could tell me what to do. I’ve been building houses my whole life. Know it like the back of my hand. I mean who doesn’t know how to use a ladder? Well, I fell off a ladder. Now, my back’s shot and it’s cost me my business. Worked hard all these years and a fall off a ladder was my last day on the job. The thing is - it didn’t have to happen.
More than half the falls in construction are from less than three metres. Always work safely at height. For more information call the Department of Labour 0800 20 90 20.
