According to Singapore government statistics, falls from height were the biggest single cause of fatalities in both marine and construction sectors in 2009 - 54% and 36% respectively. Fall protection, therefore, is of global interest.

Height Safety - One death is too many

Falls are the biggest cause of deaths in workplaces throughout the world. On top of this, high percentages suffer major injury such as broken bones or fractured skulls. You don’t have to fall far to be hurt, many deaths and major injuries were from a fall from below head height. It’s easy to see why many authorities have made reducing the number of falls from height a priority.
