Ladder safety matters - don’t let this be your last step

14 September 2016

A new national education campaign encourages older Australian men to consider the consequences before engaging in risky ladder use.

Launching the campaign today in South Australia, Acting Commissioner for Consumer Affairs, George Kamencak, said about 1,600 men aged over 65 were hospitalised annually across the country with ladder-related injuries, with most occurring while doing DIY and maintenance work at home.
