Slips, trips and falls are very common safety incidents in workplaces across industry sectors. Although the focus is often on falls from heights, which can have very serious and sometimes fatal consequences, 66% of all falls happen on the same level and as a result of slips and trips. And such falls can result in anything from minor bruising to broken bones.
