Slips, trips and falls

The Health and Safety Executive has a developed a slips and trips microsite on its website. Here you will find a wealth of information to help you assess your workplace and develop controls for prevention.

The microsite site has notes on prevention of slips and trips including notes for employers, workers, architects and designers. There are also case studies to illustrate the problems and solutions.

Managers should have systems in place for the regular inspection of workplaces to ensure Slip and Trip hazards don't appear. SWP Managing Health and Safety will provide guidance on inspections.

Safety footwear is covered in SWP Personal Protective Equipment.

The legislative requirements for flooring are set out in SWP Workplace Health Safety and Welfare.

The SWP's listed above can be found in the downloadable documents list below.
