Slips trips and falls are the most common incidents in the workplace. Previously figures have shown that 40 workers lost their live in one year due to slips trips and falls. Surprisingly a simple slip or trip can cause serious injury requiring medical attention such as such as back injuries paralysis broken bones and head injuries. Lots of slips trips and fall accidents happen in the working environment because of poor health and safety regulations. It is estimated the cost to society for slips trips and falls each year is around £800 million.
Slips trips and falls can easily be prevented if the obvious workplace safety regulations are maintained. It is the employer’s responsibility if an employee slips trips or falls. Your employer has got to provide you with a safe and secure working environment. Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 your employer has the responsibility to keep you safe in the workplace. The Health and Safety Act is the primary piece of legislation that covers your work related health and safety issues in the UK. It states your employer’s responsibilities for your health and safety at work.
