Slips, Trips and Falls in Education

Slips, Trips and Falls

Duration: 20 – 30 min

In 2017/18, slips, trips and falls were the biggest cause of injury in education (alongside public administration & defence, compulsory social security, human health and social work activities); being responsible for 32% of workplace injuries.

A student slipping/tripping and injuring themselves has potential to significantly disrupt their education, and a teacher taking time off work to recover from a preventable accident will disrupt many students’ education.

With 3.9 million working days lost in 2017/18 due to non-fatal workplace injuries, sufficient training is very important in educational institutions to ensure a low-risk (or risk-free – if possible) environment for staff and students alike.
