RR065 - Development of a methodology for the assessment of human factors issues relative to trips, slips and fall accidents in the offshore industries

The project initially aimed to produce a tool for the Health and Safety Executive field inspectors to use offshore to consider those factors likely to increase the incidence of trip, slip and fall (STF) incidents. The focus of the project changed throughout the life of the project as feedback from various trial stages was obtained. The final tool was developed to be capable of being easily applied by the workforce and supervision. It was also developed to be action orientated. Presents an overview of the development stages of the tool throughout the project before describing the final product. A further project is planned to refine the tool for general publication.
