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