IPAF Supports No Falls Week

The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) proudly supports the upcoming No Falls Week initiative, taking place from 13th May to 17th May.


No Falls Week is a campaign dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of safe working at height practices across various industries. 


Falls from heights are consistently the leading cause of workplace fatalities in the U.K. The latest figures from the HSE show that 40 people lost their lives due to a fall from height in 2022-2023. Falls from height were responsible for 30% of all workplace deaths.


Every year hundreds of thousands of people work at height in a variety of industry sectors. Work at height takes place in every sector from construction, roofing and facilities management, but there are also countless others who work at height on a day-to-day basis – often without realising it – in shops, offices, factories and hospitals.  


What they all have in common is risk. The risk of a fall that might kill them or leave them with serious life-changing injuries with potentially devastating consequences for their families, friends and work colleagues.


No Falls Week's mission is simple, yet crucial: to equip workers in construction, manufacturing, agriculture, and all other sectors with the knowledge, tools, and inspiration necessary to prevent falls and ensure the safety of everyone working at height.
