    Avoiding and preventing potential accidents whilst walking around the office

    When walking around the office there are often many potential accidents waiting to happen, and here we give you a few tips on how to avoid these.

    Look where you are walking to avoid  slip, trip or fall potential accidents

    This is probably the one everyone thinks of, but definitely has to be on the list, as it is a major factor in preventing slips, trip and falls. People are often very distracted, either by having a lot of tasks or by thinking about non-related things. Either way, if you are not looking where you are going, then a serious slip or trip accident may happen. So, do yourself and other people a favour and look where you are going in the future to prevent potential accidents.

    See an obstacle? Pick it up

    If you see a box of paperwork, or folder, on the floor that could cause someone to trip or slip up, then move it out of the way. Alternatively, if you find the item is too heavy, or you don’t want to move it, then report it straight to your manager so they can get it moved. Any obstacle is a potential work accident injury, so the sooner the office is tidier, the easier it will be for colleagues to prevent any slip, trips and falls.

    Don’t leave wet umbrellas lying about

    This one is only applicable as potential accidents when there has been rain, but as we live in the UK this is something which happens a lot. If you have brought an umbrella from home which is wet from the rain, try to avoid dripping it all around the office as this can cause puddles which could then cause a serious slip injury. At the same time if you see a large puddle of liquid report it straight to your manager to deal with.

    But, if you do, or have had, a slip, trip or fall in the last three years, that wasn’t your fault, then Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help. Find out if, and how much, you could claim.
