    Compensation for call centre slips, trips and falls

    Working in a call centre can be quite an intense job to do. You will be on the phone for much of the time but there are other things you will need to do as well. Even if you leave your desk for lunch and break times you’ll be expected to be back there in time to resume your work at the allotted time.

    While much of this won’t come as a surprise to you, you might be surprised to learn that some people suffer call centre slips, trips and falls while they are moving around the floor or building where they work. These incidents don’t crop up that often but they do happen, and when they do they can have profound consequences for the people who suffer them.

    Injuries both minor and serious

    You’d be right to wonder how you might be hurt in circumstances like this. For example you could end up getting a foot caught in a piece of flooring that hasn’t been tacked down or fitted properly. You might slip in a puddle left by a cleaner’s mop bucket. Worse still, you might slip at the top of a flight of stairs and end up falling down them.

    Whatever the case may be, call centre slips, trips and falls may not sound that serious but they could have the potential to be. Anything from embarrassment to broken bones could be suffered by the person who ends up falling or slipping over. If this was you, how would you cope with your injuries from that moment on?

    Long-term injuries?

    In some instances – thankfully rare ones – you might receive injuries that will have a long-term effect on you. For example you could fall and break your coccyx, otherwise known as your tailbone. This is a very painful injury and it means you won’t be able to sit down. You could be off work for some time and some people can never sit properly again because of the pain.
