Lawyer in Spalding


According to statistics from the Health and Safety Executive, slips, trips and falls account for over a third of all serious workplace injuries. They also account for over half of all injuries to members of the public each year.

Common causes of slips, trips and falls

The main causes of slips, trips and falls in the working environments are:

  • Uneven floor surfaces;
  • Inappropriate floor coverings;
  • Slippery floors;
  • Trailing cables;
  • Poor lighting; and
  • Bad housekeeping.

Preventing slips, trips and falls

Employers have a legal and moral duty to protect their employees and visitors from slips, trips and falls. To ensure the safety of the working environment, the HSE recommends that all employers adopt a five-step slip, trip and fall risk assessment, which involves:

  1. Looking out for slip, trip and fall hazards;
  2. Determining the types of individuals who may be at risk;
  3. Considering the way in which the risks can be eliminated or minimised;
  4. Recording the findings of the risk assessment and implementing any necessary safety measures; and
  5. Reviewing the risk assessment on a regular basis.

Reducing the risks of slips, trips and falls

Employers can usually reduce the risks of slips, trips and falls with the greatest of ease. Necessary risk reduction measures include:

  • Cleaning up all spillages immediately;
  • Using signs to inform employees and visitors of wet floors;
  • Using cable guards to cover trailing cables;
  • Ensuring suitable footwear is worn;
  • Securing rugs and mats;
  • Treating slippery floor surfaces with chemicals; and
  • Improving lighting levels over floor areas.
