Falls from height are one of the most common forms of accident at work, comprising nearly 20% of all workplace injuries. Every year, falls result in around 5000 cases of major injury and about 80 fatalities, usually from heights above two metres. The construction industry alone accounts for half of these incidents.  It is estimated that the annual cost to society of accidents caused by falls is in the region of more than 300 million pounds, primarily in terms of personal suffering, but also including medical costs, costs to employers, lost output and damage to equipment.
