    5 slip and trip hazards within the hotel car park


    5 slip and trip hazards within the hotel car park

    Hotels are often at their busiest during the peak seasons which is mainly in the summers and during school holidays such as Easter and Christmas. During these times hotels are a hive of activity with visitors checking in and checking out and coming and going at all times of the day. Due to this, accidents can and do occur in particular slips, trips and falls. Here are 5 slip and trip hazards that occur within the hotel car park.

    1. Sustaining a slip injury whilst drunk
      It has happened to a lot more people than you think, especially at weddings.If you are more than a bit tipsy you may find yourself having a slip or trip whilst you are out getting some fresh air as you won’t be focusing so much on what is ahead of you and more on staying upright.
    2. Getting a slip injury from the kerb stone
      This one is pretty obvious but it is easy when rushing around to sustain a slip, trip or fall injury if you happen to not notice a step or the kerb causing you to fall or stumble.
    3. Slips and trips over small children
      This is something that can also be a common occurrence.  Children love to run around and they often appear out of nowhere. When this happens it can be easy to sustain a slip or trip injury if they happen to get under your feet.
    4. Trips due to incoming vehicles
      Drivers coming in or out of car parks are not always observant of those around them as they may be focussing on the day or evening ahead. This is when nasty accidents can happen which could cause you to sustain a trip injury at the very least if you have to dodge out of a car’s way quickly.
    5. Slip injuries through spillages
      This can be another painful slip injury as the cause is usually a puddle of water or oil if a car has been leaking recently.
