Slips, trips and falls can happen anywhere inside or outdoors, regardless of the job you work in. Some of the issues that can lead to employees, students and visitors being exposed to these issues included:
- Distracted walking (listening, playing or talking on devices)
- Uneven floors
- Poor housekeeping (spills and slippery floors)
- Weather (wet/icy conditions)
- Clutter of loose cords
- Unsecured rugs and mats
These can lead to serious injuries and even death. Eliminate hazards such as these. Awareness, good housekeeping practices, shoe wear selection and a positive safety culture at work will help to illuminate these incidences.
