Slips and trips

Images reads: Slips and Trips

Slips and trips are the most common cause of major injuries at work and make up over a third of all major injuries.

Over 10,000 workers suffered serious injury because of a slip or trip last year. 95% of major slips result in broken bones. They can also be the initial cause for a range of other types of accident such as a fall from height.

Everyone in the workplace has a part to play when it comes to preventing slips and trips, from the person who designed the building to the people working inside of it.
