Falls from just three feet have been known to cause injuries. At construction sites, falls can be from several stories. Whatever the height, all falls can be prevented with the proper training and safety measures in place.
Property owners and construction companies are responsible for having safety measures (guardrails, safety nets and fall arrest systems) in place to prevent these accidents from happen. Additionally, each construction company must provide its workers with adequate training on safe practices, and how to properly use safety equipment.
Any neglect to provide employees with a safe working environment can result in a company being held liable for an accident and any injuries that occur as a result.
