We like having our feet on the ground. Still, about 5,000 people per year are put on sick leave due to same-level falls in Sweden. Slippery stairs, poorly lighted areas or spaces, being in a hurry – accidents happen for any number of reasons.
It happens in nearly all industries, but those who work outdoors are at the greatest risk, particularly in the winter. Even indoors, there is the risk of falls from a short height that could have long-term consequences.
