A simple slip trip or fall can cause serious damage and injury to a person; such as back injuries paralysis broken bones and head injuries.
Many slips and trip accidents happen in the working environment due to poor health and safety regulations. They are caused by carelessness to tidy away obstructions in walkways which are big trip hazards. This is the responsibility of the employer; it is their responsibility to provide a safe working environment for their employee to carry out their work and travel around the workplace and tripping can be prevented. Employers must comply with health and safety law to prevent staff experiencing a slip or trip in the workplace. These procedures are things such as :
? gathering electrical cables
? signposting wet floors
? making sure the workplace is sufficiently well lit
? keeping walkways clear from obstructions
? Eliminating any obstructions which are likely to cause tripping
? Covering holes and getting rid of uneven surfaces
