Slips, Trips and Falls (in the Workplace)
Slips, trips and falls are the biggest cause of injury to people at work, being responsible for a third of all workplace-related injuries in 2020/21.
The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 requires employers to ensure that the work environment is as safe as reasonably possible for employees and customers/clients.
In addition to slips and trips being responsible for 33% of all workplace injuries, 6.3 million working days were lost in 2020 due to non-fatal workplace injuries. Therefore sufficient slips, trips and falls training for all employees should ensure that overall awareness is increased, hazards are addressed more effectively, and accidents are reduced or avoided altogether.
This course seeks to educate on:
- health & safety law concerning slips, trips and falls
