What is the most common cause of ladder and scaffolding accidents?
Defective or broken parts cause a lot of ladder and scaffolding accidents and force thousands of people to suffer serious and sometimes fatal injuries. Negligence by other people also plays a large role. Whether you’re a construction worker, roofer, painter, carpenter, window washer or working at home, even a short fall off a ladder, scaffolding or platform can cause significant damage. Some of the most common causes of ladder and scaffolding accidents include:
- Damaged or worn out parts
- Incorrect assembly or placement
- Using the wrong size ladder or scaffolding
- Falling due to slippery or cluttered surfaces
- Negligence of unqualified or inexperienced workers
- Lack of appropriate supervision on the job site
- Not following OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) regulations
Maybe you were injured due to unsafe work conditions. It could be that an irresponsible company manufactured a faulty or defective piece of equipment. Or you might have gotten hurt due to the reckless actions of another person. If you’ve been injured in a ladder or scaffolding accident that wasn’t your fault, act quickly.
