Ladders account for around 40% of falls from height accidents in the UK

With an estimated two million ladders in daily use across the UK, it is perhaps not surprising that ladders account for around 40% of falls from height accidents investigated by the Health & Safety Executive in workplaces in the UK each year.

The use of ladders is by far and away the largest single cause of such accidents both in the workplace and at home.

With more people undertaking DIY involving ladder work, figures show that around 48,000 people a year in the UK now attend hospital Accident and Emergency departments following a ladder accident in and around the home.

The main reason for ladder accidents is the ladder slipping generally due to users overreaching or because the ladder is not properly secured.

Ladder Grips improves ladder stability by up to 350% by securing the top of the ladder, not the feet, because if the top of the ladder is made immobile, the feet are unlikely to move either making it far safer to use.

The key feature that makes Ladder Grips so powerful in improving ladder safety is the formulation of the rubber pad giving the Ladder Grips device unrivaled gripping power.
