Abstract:   (61 Views)
Falling from height is an urban phenomenon and shows an important form of blunt trauma. We report an 18-year-old man who fell from 6 m height onto vertical steel rods in an under construction building. He went under surgery to remove two foreign bodies and was discharged on the 2nd day after surgery in good conditions. The objective of this report is to provide a definitive baseline to improve the incidence rate of fall from height. It is better to consult with key stakeholders in the workplace to gain a view on the key issues relating to fall from height. Similarly, it is good to use the available measurements in order to control and prevent those at risk.
