Ladders: Injuries

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 44395, tabled on 7 September 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 1 July 2021 to Question 23249 on Ladders: Injuries, what data is collected on injuries presented at emergency departments and minor injury units; and how is any connection between that data and ladder accidents recorded.

The Emergency Care Data Set categorises the incident leading to injury, including the status and type of activity being undertaken as well as the cause of the injury. While a connection between the injury and ladder accidents can be established through these categories, there is no specific entry for ladders as a cause of injury.
