Mr M a car manufacturer from Newcastle was aged 32 when his accident took place. His accident happened whilst he was working: he was in a car manufacturing plant. His accident occurred because of some tools which were just abandoned: Mr M slipped on the tools strewn across the floor. The tools were by the conveyer belt and were hidden from sight. As a result of his accident he suffered a fractured scaphoid.
Fractured scaphoids are normally caused by a fall with an outstretched hand. Your scaphoid bone is one of your bones around the area of your wrist. Symptoms can include pain and swelling around your wrist. Treatment is usually with a cast worn on your arm up to your elbow for 8 to 12 weeks. Sometimes surgery is advised.
A study showed that in the past slip trip and fall incidents in the workplace cost 40 workers their lives in one year over 15000 major injuries and over 30000 workers have taken more than three days off work because of slips trips and falls.
