The largest cause of injuries in the NHS is slips

Last year, slips and trips resulted in:-

  • Almost 11,000 major injuries
  • 36% of total number of major injuries
  • 30,000 over 3 day injuries
  • 23% of the total number of over 3 day injuries
  • In Local Authority enforced industries more than 42% of major injuries and 23% of over three day injuries

Although the number of over-3-day slip and trip accidents has fallen since 2001/02, the number of major injuries has remained essentially flat. You can see here the most up to date statistics.

The HSE has an extensive database of case studies which can be seen here this should help give you some practical guidance on reducing and helping to prevent slip accidents in your workplace. The Shattered Lives Campaign is an excellent source of replica rolex information. Below is a list of detailed reports and evaluations commissioned by the HSE. They are all available to download. Reports into metal, wooden, epoxy and stone flooring materials are particularly interesting.

Further tests were made using a calibrated surface micro-roughness transducer set to the Rz parameter. Click here to find out more.
