Preventing slips and trips within your organisation

Slips and trips are the most common cause of injury at work. On average, they make up over a third of all major injuries and can also lead to other types of serious accidents, for example falls from height. Slips and trips are also the most reported injury to members of the public.

Obligations outlined by the 1974 Health and Safety at Work Act and reinforced by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 require employers to ensure staff are kept safe by minimising slip and trip risks within the workplace.

Carrying out an effective risk assessment can help reduce the risk of these accidents and injuries. They also provide significant help to your insurer when defending, when justified, you and your organisation against injury claims resulting from slips and trips.

Ecclesiastical provide a wide range of health and safety guidance and risk assessment forms to help you minimise the risk of slips and trips on your premises. We have also produced a short video and handy infographic with further advice for your organisation.
