Slips and trips as mentioned earlier do not just always result in someone landing on the floor and suffering from a minor bump. If someone is walking with a vat of hot water and they slip there is the potential for a very serious burns injury to be sustained which could possibly result in scarring. If a builder was working at height with no safety harness and a colleague had left a bucket in his path and he tripped it would just be a bump if he was to fall five storeys to the ground.

This kind of accident from a slip trip or fall is the reason it is so vital that employers take health and safety seriously. In the case of the builder if he was working at height he should be provided with the appropriate personal protective equipment in order to stop him from falling off the scaffolding even if he does have a trip.

Personal protective equipment is anything that an employee needs in order to be able to carry out their job safety and with as little risk to themselves as possible. This could be latex gloves for nurses or heatproof gloves for steel workers to conducting gloves for electricians to flame retardant ones for firemen; there is a multitude of equipment designed to protect employees from harm it is up to the employers to provide the appropriate PPE.
