Common types of accidents at work
Some of the most common kinds of accidents which happen at work are the simplest to prevent. Accidents such as slips, trips and falls or manual handling accidents, which may have left you suffering from an injury that required medical attention, could have been avoided if health and safety law had been followed.
Slips can occur when employees are left to discover too late that the floor has become slippery due to cleaning, or when a spillage or leak has happened. An easy way to prevent this accident from happening would have been for a clear warning sign to be put up and for the floor to be dried, cleaned or cordoned off from staff.
Trips and falls often occur because of poor flooring or poor housekeeping. Clutter, loose wires, upturned carpet or loose tiles can cause employees to really injure themselves. Injuries may be significantly worse if a victim falls onto a sharp object or falls down the stairs.
Manual handling injuries are often sustained when lifting, carrying or moving heavy items is done incorrectly. All staff that are required to do this work should be trained to prevent accidents and injuries from happening.
