Ladders are commonly the cause for concern because people don’t use them properly. That is why work from heights is one of the topics covered by the White Card course.

The most recent accident involving a ladder that resulted in the hospitalisation of a 70 year Gunnedah man happened when he fell 4 metres while working from the ladder.

The man suffered serious injuries to his head and back as a result of the fall and was flown to Tamworth hospital in a stable condition.
