It’s quite amazing that something as simple as a slip could potentially cause injuries that are very painful. Classrooms are generally places of learning and many children and adults attend them each day to go to lessons. Most of the time the lessons will be completed without incident, and the teachers will move on to their next class as well. It is rare that something would happen where this might not be the case.
A slip in a classroom can happen if there is something on the floor that might result in a slip becoming more likely. For example you might slip on someone’s food or drink if something has been spilled there. Similarly if the floor has been cleaned prior to lessons and is either very shiny or still wet, this might also constitute a potential hazard.
While it is possible to claim classroom slip compensation if you slip over and hurt yourself, it is preferable to make sure such incidents are prevented in the first place. Health and safety is just as important in schools and colleges as it is in other workplaces. If these rules are followed properly there should be little chance of anyone being injured in any way.
A slip might sound like a simple and common thing to happen, but in reality there are times when it can lead to a horrible injury. Twisted ankles, broken bones and torn muscles could all potentially happen. It depends on how you slip and whether this leads to a fall.
