This video’s contents are: Slips, Trips and Falls. Easily avoid these common workplace accidents through basic safety protocol. Around 30% of all non-fatal accidents are caused by slips, trips and falls. That’s a staggering 100,000 plus per year! What practical steps can we take?
1. Wear suitable footwear for all conditions.
2. Avoid rushing around – you could trip up.
3. Clean up spillages immediately.
4. Be aware of uneven surfaces.
5. Manage trailing cables.
6. Good housekeeping…keep aisles and stairways clear.
7. Poor lighting…Maintain clean light fixtures to improve lighting efficiency.
8. Keep surfaces and stairways clear of debris.
9. Putting tools away and equipment after use. 10. Don’t carry loads that block your view.
Safety cartoons can help highlight dangers in the workplace. Slips and trips are the most common cause of injury at work. On average, they cause 40 per cent of all reported major injuries and can also lead to other types of serious accidents. Slips and trips are also the most reported injury to members of the public. In many instances, straightforward measures can readily control risks, for example ensuring spillages are cleaned up promptly so people do not slip.
A good risk management system will help you identify problem areas, decide what to do, act on decisions made and check that the steps taken have been effective.
