Among the most dangerous types of elevated falls are ladder falls. The primary purpose of a ladder is to allow the user to climb to some height off the ground – whether that's only a couple of feet on a stepladder to change a light bulb, or a dozen yards on an extension ladder to work on a construction project – and being off the ground poses the inherent risk of falling. That's why everyone involved in the activity, from the person doing the climbing to other people working around them to the manufacturer that designed and sold the ladder itself, has a responsibility to reduce that risk as much as possible. Ladder falls can result in serious damage to the neck, back, and spine, broken bones, severe head trauma, or even death.
