The Health and Safety Authority has published a new guide aimed at preventing slips, trips and falls. Stop Slips, Trips and Falls – Get A Grip will provide employers with information on how to reduce the amount of workplace injuries which happen on their premises, and to prevent accidents happening in the future.
Although slips, trips and falls may seem like minor injuries compared to those involving heavy machinery, around 20% of workers who suffer a slip, trip or fall at work remain absent for more than one month. The also account for half of all injuries made by the Injuries Board Ireland.
