Falls from Heights (FFH) is one of the leading causes of work injury fatalities since 2011.  From 2011 - 2014, FFH had contributed to 55 fatalities, 339 major injuries and 2,240 minor injuries. 63.6% of the fatal cases due to FFH are from  the construction industry from the period of 2011 – 2014. 


To prevent, minimise and solve these issues holistically, we welcome interested parties to provide practical solutions to the following research statement for the Construction industry:

The Research must look into providing an effective and practical system in preventing FFH accidents in the Singapore construction sector.
