No Falls Week

13th May 2024

No Falls Week

This week, 13 – 17th May, is No Falls Week.

The No Falls Foundation are committed to reducing accidents at work caused by falls from heights and this week marks the first “No Falls Week” focusing on how employers and employees alike can help.

The HSE has detailed regulations and guidance on working at height and how best to protect workers. Sadly those rules are often not adhered to resulting in avoidable injuries.  Because of the  nature of a fall from height the consequences can be catastrophic, as demonstrated by the recent death of George Gilbey from Clacton which was widely reported in the national press.  Often simple safety measures and checks are all that are needed to prevent falls.

Currently here at Gotelee our PI team are supporting clients who have fallen from and through insecure scaffolding, unstable ladders and  down poorly lit stairs.  In addition we are acting for a client who suffered a severely broken leg as a result of a falling object which could have been prevented by a simple piece of equipment costing as little as £30.

We therefore support the Campaign and are joining in to raise awareness about the importance of working safely in whatever type of workplace or industry and to reduce the number of workplace injuries and fatalities.

If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault our Personal injury team can advise you on bringing a claim and receiving rehabilitation to assist in your recovery. We usually advise on a “no win no fee” basis and are happy to have an initial chat to discuss your case.
