HSE (Health and Safety Executive) Figures show that between 2005 and 2010 there were 2647 recorded accidents relating to people being hit by falling objects from alloy scaffold towers. Not only are there risks of injury from objects falling from height, but there is also the potential for damaged tools and equipment incurring unnecessary costs.
