Being injured isn’t a nice thing, but being injured when you know that it could have been avoided is even worse. Over a third of all injuries reported at work are caused by employees slipping. Serious injuries can be caused by slipping over and the severity of the injury can depend on the hardness of the floor surface and how they land on that surface.
Additional injuries, such as broken wrists, can be incurred if a person puts their hands out to try to lessen the fall. Also injuries can be caused by a person slipping into a hard object, especially if they hit a hard metal corner.
