Your staff can slip or trip any time, any place. Slips often happen where there is too little traction between the foot and the floor, where the surface may be wet or oily or where a rug or a mat is unanchored.
Trips in the workplace can happen when an employee’s foot collides with an object, causing a loss of balance.
Our courses help identify the most common factors contributing to a slip or a trip in the workplace and provides training to limit the risks.
