Slips, Trips, and Falls
Slips and trips are the most common workplace hazards and make up over a third of all major injuries. In the UK over 10,000 workers suffer serious injury every year because of a slip trip and fall. The main reasons for slips trips falls are: obstacles and contamination, people, flooring, the environment and footwear. The first three can be helped by proper maintenance cleaning, slip protection and training. Footwear can be carefully specified and used at all times. Although environmental factors such as lighting (natural or otherwise), loud or unfamiliar noises, the weather, humidity, condensation, etc can’t always be changed or removed, our work practices or risk assessments can take them into account.
