Slips, trips and falls are the leading cause of workplace accidents in North America. Ironically, they are also some of the most avoidable. They can occur at virtually any organization, in any industry.

Main reasons for slips, trips and falls are poor housekeeping, lack of PPE and careless workers.

Leaving tools and spills on the floor is a quick path to a co-worker tripping or slipping. Leaving cords running across the floor is another common tripping hazard.

Wearing the wrong type of shoes can mean slipping on wet floors. Wearing too big of shoes can mean tripping over your own feet while walking.

Simply failing to observe your surroundings can cause slips, trips and falls. Being attentive is the best protection.

SafetyNow resources help you explain to workers potential slip, trip and fall hazards at their workplace. As well, use them to educate workers on what can go wrong when housekeeping, PPE and behavior is careless.
