Slips, trips and falls

Slips and trips are one of the most common causes of major workplace injuries. Tackling slips, trips and falls means focusing on three fundamental areas:

  1. Undertake a detailed risk assessment on slip and trip hazards to create and implement an action plan
  2. Control and mitigate risk. Allocate appropriate time and resource to tackle the plan
  3. Focus on key root causes for improvement to minimise future likelihood of injury.

For further information on these three steps including a useful checklist for your clients, download the Aviva Loss Prevention Standard.
