Falls Trips & Slips at Work Claims

Falls from Height, slipping and tripping accidents constitute the single most common source of major injury at work and are estimated to cause over one and a quarter million lost days from work.  Falls from height are the most common type of fatal accident in a workplace (23% of all fatal accidents at work in 20011/12) according to the HSE.

Employer’s Liability

Employers have a duty under the Workplace Health Safety and Welfare Regulations 1992 to ensure:

  • Floor surfaces and pedestrian traffic routes are of suitable construction and that they kept free from tripping  and slipping hazards so far as reasonably practicable
  • A safe place of work, safe access to it and competent fellow employees
  • Appropriate signs are in place e.g. if the floors are wet and there should be enough light so people can read these signs
