                                                              SLIP, TRIP AND FALL PREVENTION
Slips, trips, and falls can result in injuries with lasting effects and even death. It is important to understand how slips, trips and falls happen, how to identify hazards and how to eliminate or minimize the hazards.


Slips happen because of a lack of friction or traction between a person’s footwear and the walking surface.
Common causes of slips to look for in the workplace are:
• Spills • Hazards created from weather (e.g. puddles and ice)
• Surfaces that are wet or oily • Loose rugs or mats


Trips occur when your foot strikes or hits an object, which causes a person to lose their balance.
Common causes of trips to look for in the workplace are:
• Obstructions and clutter on the floor • Poor lighting
(e.g. power cords, boxes, and open drawers) • Uneven or irregular walking surfaces
• Wrinkled or curled up mats


Falls can result from a slip or a trip when a person’s center of gravity is shifted and balance is lost.
In addition to slips and trips, other causes of falls to look for in the workplace are:
• Obstructed view (e.g. carrying large items) • Not paying attention to the surroundings
• Not using appropriate equipment (e.g standing on a chair, table, or other surface with wheels)
