Slips, Trips & Falls

Slips, trips and falls have become one of the main health and safety risks in our community and the most expensive occupational health and safety cost for business and industry. Click here to go to C.S.I.R.O for more details

Slip and fall prevention has become a national health priority area.  The Australian Government has many initiatives designed to reduce such injuries in the workplace, in residences and in public areas.

The potential for serious injury from slips, trips and falls cannot be overestimated. Such incidents have critical consequences and long-term effects. Workers' compensation insurance covers only a small portion of the costs. It does not account for indirect costs, such as:

 

  •  

  • The time to process and manage the injury
     
  • Increased workloads for other staff to perform the injured person's work
     
  • Loss of expertise and necessary skills and additional training for replacement staff
     
  • Decreased productivity
     
  • The human aspect of pain and suffering
