Slips and falls break bones Monday 22 August 2011 PDF Print Slips and falls are one of the biggest causes of major injury and broken bones... but slip prevention is not high on health and safety agenda. Slips cost far more than you might think: 600,000 hospital bed days, insurance costs, lawsuits, brand damage, and thousands of people suffering broken bones each year. Every public building you walk into will have a fire certificate and will have safety manuals on most types of injury risk e.g. electrical safety, falls from heights. BUT... the floor you walk on will not have been tested for slip risk and you are more likely to slip and fall than you are to suffer any other injury. You walk on floors all day. Is your pool-side floor safe? Is the rail or bus station floor safe? Is your office reception safe? The coffee shop? The Shopping Mall? Is the hotel lobby safe? You won't know. The chances are that they won't know until you slip and fall! The Health and Safety Executive know that most slip injuries could be prevented. A modern slip test takes seconds and the cost is miniscule compared to the cost of laying a bad floor or the cost of one slip injury. Isn't it time to make slip safety a priority for all businesses?
