Mrs W was 61 when she suffered a nasty trip at work. The raised manhole cover that Mrs W tripped over was an obvious and very dangerous hazard in the workplace. It wasn?t a concealed hazard therefore the person in charge of health and safety should have cordoned it off or put a sign out until someone could have fixed it.
People who have accidents as they get older statistically suffer much worse injuries that younger people. If someone was to fall on a pavement at the age of 25 and a person of 65 was to have the exact same fall the younger person would be at a much lesser risk of sustaining a fracture or a much worse injury than an older person.
Slips trips and falls due to water and obstructions in walkways make up the majority of the accidents that have been reported in the workplace in recent years.

Sometimes a simple slim can turn into a much nastier accident. If someone was to simply slip on a floor in the lobby of a hotel they may suffer soft tissue damage or a fracture; if someone was to slip whilst carrying a vat of hot soup in a kitchen they would suffer the fall injuries and also scald and burn injuries. This is why health and safety at work is of the utmost importance. It is an employer’s duty to provide a safe working environment for all their staff including in the case of the woman slipping in the kitchen the appropriate flooring to help prevent slips.
