National Safety Month is the perfect time to focus on slips, trips, and falls – a leading cause of workplace injuries. Every year, slips, trips, and falls lead to millions of dollars in lost productivity and medical expenses. In some cases, these accidents can even be fatal. That’s why employers need to take steps to mitigate any risks that could lead to these accidents. This blog post will discuss tips for keeping your workplace safe from slips, trips, and falls.


According to the National Safety Council, slips, trips and falls account for 15% of all workplace injuries. Of these accidents, slips are the most common, followed by trips and then falls. Slips typically occur when there is a change in the walking surface, such as from wet to dry or from smooth to uneven. Trips usually happen when there is an obstruction in the walking path, such as a loose cord or an open drawer. Falls typically occur when there is a change in elevation, such as when going up or down stairs.


Slips, trips, and falls are leading causes of workplace injuries and can sometimes be fatal. Employers must take steps to mitigate any risks that could lead to these incidents. Some tips for keeping your workplace safe from slips, trips, and falls include:

– Keeping the floors clean and free of debris

– Ensuring all floor surfaces are in good repair

– Putting up warning signs or barriers around potential hazards

– Encouraging employees to wear appropriate footwear

– Providing training on how to safely work in areas where there is a risk of slips, trips or falls.

By following these tips, you can help create a safer workplace for everyone. Do you have any other tips for preventing slips , trips and falls? Share them with us in the comments below.
