Our client suffered a sore and swollen wrist after the fall. A wrist injury after a fall is quite a common injury as we put our hands out to try to save injuring ourselves badly and so the wrist frequently takes the momentum of the fall.
Slips can be prevented by following some common sense guidelines
? Tables should have lips around them to prevent liquids from dripping from work surfaces this is a common slip hazard
? Walkways should always be kept clear of obstructions
? Spills should be immediately dealt with and where possible this should be attempted as a liquid free clean up
? Floors should be designed to be non slippery if it is expected that they may have liquids dropped on them frequently
? Cleaning staff should be prevented from using cleaning products which can increase the slip factor of the floor surface as an example furniture polish on a smooth tile could prove to be a very bad idea
? Footwear which is chosen for the role is always a good idea if accident are to be avoided
? Carrying loads trolleys increases the slip risk and should be reduced if possible
? Pushing trolleys can also increase the risk of slipping
