Preventing workplace stairway accidents
If you are an employer then you have a duty of care to all of your employees and must ensure that their workspace is as safe and secure as possible. This means making sure that all office spaces are clean and tidy, putting safety procedures in place for the more risky elements of the job and so on. A place that is often neglected and thus causes a number of accidents is the stairways of your workplace. Because people don’t spend much time in them you are likely to leave this out of your health and safety rules and procedures, but stairways can be very dangerous if not taken care of properly.
