Slips, Trips & Falls

Slips, trips and falls can result in sprains and strains, cuts and bruises, broken bones and more.  Slips and trips occur when there’s an unintended or unexpected change in contact between the feet and the ground or other walking-working surface.

Slips occur when too little friction or traction is present between a worker’s footwear and the walking surface.  Common causes of slips include:

  • wet or oily surfaces,
  • weather hazards,
  • or lose ground.

Trips occur when a worker’s foot makes contact with an object resulting in a loss of balance and a fall.  Common causes of tripping include:
