Did you know slips and trips are often seen as a joke? however in reality nothing could be further from the truth. Slips and trips are the most common cause of major injuries at work. They occur in almost all workplaces; according to the HSE, 95% of major slips result in broken bones.
Good house-keeping is essential and educating employees about risks is imperative. Ensure that floors are regularly cleaned and maintained so they are free of water, ice, oil, grease, chemical spillages etc, this will help to reduce the risk of slipping significantly. It's not just spilt liquids that make floor surfaces dangerous, swarf, powders and other dry debris can act like marbles on a floor surface. Uneven and poorly maintained floor surfaces can also cause both slips and trips. There should be no trailing cables either. Floor safety should be evaluated, with regular Risk Assessments. Carefully conciser any risks and initiate preventive measures such as the installation of Anti-Slip Matting, Flooring or Coatings which can dramatically improve safety underfoot. You also need to ensure that areas are well lit.
