A 2005 US study found most business executives ranked workplace accidents involving slips, trips and falls as seventh on a list of the most common jobsite injuries. However, slips, trips and falls are actually the second leading cause of workplace injury, and the problem is growing.
Accounting for nearly 14% of all costs - medical, legal and other - related to workplace injuries, it is estimated that these expenses total approximately $70 billion a year, and this does not include the impact - and expense - of reduced worker productivity when injured employees must take time off work.
Slips, trips, and falls can occur just about anywhere and can be caused by a variety of reasons. For instance, slips usually occur as a result of too little friction or traction between footwear and the floor. Slips and trips can affect forward motion, causing the upper body positioning to fall ahead of or behind the lower body. Either way, balance is lost and a fall is often the result.
