Title: Ladder safety matters - Mick's story (Links to English resource)
Summary: Ladders are associated with more deaths and injuries than any other household product and older men are over-represented in the statistics. Case studies featuring three Victorian men who fell from a ladder while doing home maintenance were developed. Almost every ladder injury was preventable, and that is why older men are being encouraged to make safety matter when using a ladder. This is Mick's story
