29 people died after falling from height in Great British workplaces last year. Fewer than the year before, but still 29 too many. It's still the most common way to die at work, despite us all knowing that falls are preventable with proper training, sufficient planning, quality equipment and a strong safety culture.
New figures released by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) yesterday. In the 12 months to March 2020, 29 people died after a fall from height at work - down from 40 in 2018/19.
