Work-related falls are still a major cause of injuries and fatalities, even after continuous efforts towards improving worker safety. Falls accounted for more than 20% of nonfatal occupational injuries and were the second leading cause of occupational fatalities in the United States [1,2]. Given projections showing an increasing number of workers over the age of 55 , the older population must be considered in assessing the risks and prevention of work-related falls.
