As part of the investigation into your occupational slip claim you may be asked about how the floor that you slipped on was cleaned. Cleaning plays a huge part in both the prevention of and the cause of slips, trips and falls at work and it can feature heavily in many occupational slip claims.
Accident Advice Helpline will probably be handling the personal injury aspects of your occupational injury claim and will be negotiating a fair amount of compensation on your behalf. Alongside this personal injury claim there may be a health and safety investigation into the accident and this may be conducted by the Health and Safety Executive or the Health and Safety Department of your local council. These two legal processes are entirely separate but both will be looking at what steps could (or should) have been taken to prevent the accident.
The cleaning procedure for the floor on which you slipped will certainly feature in both of these investigations. It is essential that employers select the correct cleaning methods for each floor in the workplace – it can make the difference between becoming involved in an occupational slip claim or not.
