Working on construction sites can be a very dangerous job. Construction workers are exposed to a wider variety of hazards and face a greater risk of work-related injury or fatality than employees in any other U.S. industry. Injuries related to falling off ladders and other construction site accidents are the reasons why New York has passed a unique set of labor laws that govern construction sites and mandate worksite health and safety procedures. With these laws, though, there is still a high level of injury and death due to work-related accidents. Each year there are more than 164,000 emergency room-treated injuries in the U.S. relating to ladders.

There are many reasons for someone to fall off a ladder. It can slide, tip, slip, and even break. Some people believe that ladder falls are always the fault of the victim. Many are blamed on a lack of common sense. OSHA research, on the other hand, concluded that 100% of these accidents might be eliminated with proper attention to the application of equipment, and the proper training of climbers. Human failure causes most falls, but the preventable error is often administrative; not the fault of the victim.
Many injuries can occur due to falling off of a ladder. The lesser injuries can consist of scrapes, bruises, and sprains. The injuries will worsen depending on the height of the fall. Some injuries will lead to breaks, concussions, internal bleeding, and even death.
