Health & Safety Executive Preventing falls from vehicles

Health and Safety Executive have publised a web-friendly version of the Preventing falls from vehicles Advice for workers pocket card INDG413(rev1).

More than 2000 serious injuries to people falling from vehicles are reported to HSE each year. Many of these injuries are broken arms or legs, resulting in weeks off work and possible loss of earnings. There are probably many more injuries that are not reported.

The guide covers:

  • Getting on and off the vehicle

  • Keeping your vehicle safe

  • How you can work safely

  • What your employer should do
