Slips, Trips and Falls

Don’t underestimate slips, trips and falls. Slips, trips and falls account for about one fifth of all notified accidents. 44% of Injuries Board employer liability awards were for slips, trips and falls (2008). One in five slips, trips or falls result in an absence of over a month. Half of workers surveyed believed it is their company’s responsibility (not theirs) to prevent slips and trips.
