Slips, trips and falls are a major cause of injuries both at work and at home. They can happen anywhere – in the plant, on the shop floor, out in the field, in the office or on your front stairs at home. Some injuries are minor, but others involve broken bones, serious back injuries, heat trauma and even death. The good news is preventing slips, trips and falls is not difficult. It takes a combination of being aware of your surroundings, practicing good housekeeping and using equipment properly.
