A former window cleaner from Dudley, who sustained severe work injuries after he fell from his ladder, is backing a campaign by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to reduce accidents involving falls.
Ken Bradley, 63, was cleaning windows in July 2006 when the ladder slipped and he fell, breaking his hip and wrist.
He is now supporting the latest phase of the HSE’s Shattered Lives campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the number of work injuries that are caused by slips, trips and falls every year.
"After the fall, I went over it time and time again in my head and wondered whether I could have done anything differently," said Mr Bradley.
"I hope others take this on board and make sure they always assess any situation for risk before starting a task."
It follows news that London-based firm Perryman Properties has been prosecuted after a worker fell more than six metres through a roof, suffering two fractured vertebrae.
