Slips, Trips and Falls

The HSE have launched a new campaign to reduce the amount of slip and trips in the workplace, which account for over 10,000 accidents at work. Most deaths in the workplace are caused by falls from heights.

In the UK alone slip, trip and fall incidents at work caused over 10,000 accidents including 3 fatalities last year. Most slip, trip and fall accidents are preventable with a few simple solutions including management of spillages and cleaning regimes, effective matting systems, choice of suitable footwear, specification of appropriate flooring and housekeeping to name a few.

The law states that employers have a duty to ensure workers are kept safe and that their health is not affected this includes slips, trips and falls.

WE solicitors have experienced staff who can help with these type of accidents along with other accidents at work. If you have been involved in an accident at work and are interested in making a claim please contact the Personal injury Department on 0870 165 9413.
