The number of deaths attributable to falls from cell towers has been on the rise following the increased clamor for modern cell phone networks. Knutson (2013) reveals that more than 10 cell tower workers have died this year alone. Their deaths have been occasioned by accidental falls from tall cell towers. A survey also shows that a majority of those who survive cell tower fall end up with serious injuries, including back injuries, broken limbs, and head injuries. In fact, this year alone, at least three people have suffered serious injuries after falling from cell towers. This is an indication that much needs to be done to boost the safety of cell tower workers. Improving safety will help reduce the number of falls from cell towers.
