Slip Or Trip At Work
Over a third of accidents reported in the workplace are attributed to slips, trips and falls, the causation of which varies from mere spillages, to uneven surfaces and poorly lit stairwells. In spite of these ‘common’ causations, the construction and industrial industries are deemed a greater risk, purely due to the likelihood of obstructions in warehouses and chemical spillage. Realistically, a slip or trip at work can happen anywhere, for any reason, and all employers are required to take adequate precaution and preventative measures to minimize such risks.

Slips, Trips and Falls in The Workplace
Many people who slip or trip at work are uncertain about their rights to compensation because not all accidents are easy to prove, however, there are numerous examples of successful compensation claims for both major and minor incidents. Accidents caused by mere clumsiness are fast becoming easier to differentiate from those caused by negligence or error.
A slip or trip at work can be caused by a myriad of external factors. Employers have a duty of care to ensure that main thoroughfares, walkways and doorways are free from obstruction, and that any spillages that occur are swiftly dealt with. Despite this, hundreds are still injured each year due to negligence; failure to place a wet floor sign beside a recently mopped area, prioritising other duties before removal of obstructions from public areas, or failing to clear up discarded waste.
