It is unfortunate that 40 workers in the space of a year in general lose their lives due to slip trip and fall incidents in the workplace. This shocking figure in many cases could be avoided if basic rules were followed to reduce the risk of slips and trips at work or in public places.
These basic rules which must be followed in order to reduce the risk of slips and trips at work and in a public place are fairly common sense. Basic house- keeping rules are vital; water and contaminants should be cleared up immediately after they are spilt. Particular care and attention needs to be given if liquids and foodstuffs are being handled on a daily basis. When an employer performs a risk assessment it needs to include a written procedure for dealing with spillages and these procedures should be monitored for their effectiveness as part of a risk assessment process which all employers are required to undertake.
