Over a third of all major injuries reported each year are caused as a result of a slip or trip (the single most common cause of injuries at work).
Slips and trips are the most common cause of non-fatal major injuries in both manufacturing and service industries and account for over half of all reported injuries to members of the public.
Actions brought as a result of an injury can be extremely damaging to business, especially where the public are involved. Insurance covers only a small proportion of the costs.
Anyone at work, but particularly employers, can help reduce slip and trip hazards through good health and safety arrangements.
