Every year hundreds of people are injured by slipping, tripping or falling. Slips, trips and falls are the second highest cause of reported accidents. Yet many premises visited by HSA Inspectors had not carried out a slip, trip and fall risk assessment.
- Slips, trips and falls account for 21% of all notified 4+day injuries (2010).
- 25% of injured people were unable to work for over a month (2010).
- They were the major cause (44%) of workplace accidents reviewed by the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (2009).
