EFFECTS OF FALLING

20% face death
within 10 minutes...

After a fall the body goes through several stages of physical distress. These are a group of conditions known as Suspension Intolerance and Reflow Syndrome. Their effects can be devastating. So much so in fact that 20% of all fall casualties are presumed dead within 10 minutes. And for everyone else? Within the hour.

EMERGENCY SERVICES?

There's no time to call 999.

In as little as 5 mintutes a fall victim can suffer brain damage. It's a testament to our emergency services that they can respond within 8 minutes, but for us that's already too late.

YOUR DUTY

Two Responsibilities:
One Moral. One Legal.

Work at height is risky. That means we have a duty not just to ourselves, but to others. For employers it means making adequate rescue provisions for the workforce. For operatives it means acting quickly in an emergency. And it's not just a moral duty, it's a legal one too.

See: WAH Regulations 2005 and British Standard 8437.
