In 2019, Scotland was named the most dangerous place to work in the UK, with more people dying at work than anywhere else in the UK.
A huge percentage of these terrible, avoidable deaths at work stemmed from work at height, with falls from height making up almost half of all total deaths at work in Scotland, according to the Health and Safety Executive, shining an ever brighter light and real focus on Fall Protection solutions.
Workplace injuries and deaths have had a huge impact on both the Scottish economy, with a total cost of £1.2bn in 2018/2019; more importantly, they are taking their toll on the families and friends of those lost.
With over 800 enforcement notices served by the HSE in Scotland alone in 2017, it seems employers across Scotland can be doing more to mitigate risks and dangers to their employees.
After effective training and comprehensive management safety policies, the best thing you can do to minimise the risk of injury and death at work is by providing the right equipment to keep your employees safe.
