Managing Health & Safety Risks (No. 49): Slips, trips and falls

Everyday slips, trips and falls are one of the commonest sources of injury in the home, in the street and on construction sites. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) reports that several thousand workers are injured in this way in the UK every year, with injuries ranging from bruises, through broken limbs to the more serious. Day-to-day good housekeeping on construction sites should ensure that slip or trip hazards are minimised.
