Falls are a persistent hazard found in all occupational settings. A fall can occur during the simple acts of walking or climbing a ladder to change a light fixture or as a result of a complex series of events affecting an ironworker 80 feet above the ground. According to the 2009 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in the US 605 workers were killed and an estimated 212,760 workers were seriously injured by falls to the same or lower level. NIOSH now offers an App for IOS and Android mobile devices. The app features a multimodal indicator and a graphic-oriented guide for ladder selection, inspection, positioning, accessorizing, and safe use.
