    Slips and trips in the workplace


    One of the most common accidents that can take place in the workplace are slips and trips. Slips and trips in the workplace are an unfortunate injury, as they can often be prevented by doing a few simple things beforehand.

    Accidents in the workplace

    One of the things that can be done in order to prevent injuries related to slips and trips in the workplace, is to ensure that the working environment has been maintained properly. Though this might sound like something obvious, it is often something that is neglected, and means that people find themselves the victim of an injury that needn’t have happened.

    In fact one of the best things to do is to have rules in place for dealing with the safety of your working environment as this will allow those responsible to deal with issues that could lead to slips and trips in the workplace.

    It might be the case that after a spill has been dealt with, that you need to ensure that you’ve put a sign where the spill was, since there might be some residue left, which could still allow for someone to slip and maybe injure themselves.

    Another way to deal with trips in the workplace, is to ensure that there are no trailing cables or wires. This is because trailing wires can be a common cause of injury. Trailing wires need to be dealt with, and this can be done by taping them down, or having them situated in areas where people are not likely to encounter them.
