Mr H from Llandeilo in South Wales slipped and fell on an icy driveway at the building site where he worked. His fall on an outstretched hand resulted in soft tissue damage to his wrist. Soft tissue injuries are usually accompanied by swelling although if swelling is visible the possibility of a fracture or dislocation should be carefully ruled out.

Slips trips and falls at work have caused more 15000 major injuries to workers in one year according to past figures. Also in one year more than 30000 workers have taken more than three days off work due to injuries sustained in the workplace.
