Assessing risk: Assessing slip and trip risks

Are slips and trips an issue for you or your company? Talk to workers and reps.
  • Have you had any slip or trip accidents or near misses?
  • Are workers, employee representatives, visitors or others complaining about slips and trips, ie slippery floors, uneven surfaces, blocked walkways?
  • Looking at the way people walk, are workers, visitors or contractors walking normally?
  • Looking around your workplace, can you spot hazards as mentioned on the previous page?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, slips and trips are an issue for you.

Note: No history of slip and trip accidents doesn't mean that you will never have one!
