How many times have you, me or others slipped or tripped in our lifetime? So many times, it’s impossible to remember them all. We trip on uneven paths or catch our feet on plinths we didn’t see, yet most times, we don’t fall over or suffer an injury. Some scenarios are more prone to slips, trips and falls than others with some examples including: walking on snow or ice, or a floor contaminated by grease or water.

Preventing trips and slips at work is about education and training. Helping people to stop the ‘walk on by’ attitude and do something about potential hazards that they spot. Making people aware of higher risk situations and control measures that can be implemented to reduce the risk.

It’s not really about an individual being aware of a hazard, it’s that someone else might not be aware of the hazard. By removing the hazard or making others aware of the hazard, the likelihood of an accident is significantly reduced. This approach alongside selecting suitable footwear, floor coverings and environmental factors including lighting and housekeeping is the key approach to stopping slips, trips and falls being the most common cause and/or attributing factor to accidents at the workplace.

Giving your staff training and educating them on slips, trips and falls helps change attitudes and makes them realise the extent of the problem and how certain hazards can easily be avoided.
