Slips, Trips and Falls - Safety Advice
Wet and Slippery floors are a usual occurrence in workplaces. When not properly taken care of, they can potentially cause major injuries to employees. According to Health and Safety Executive (HSE), over a third of all major injuries reported every year are caused as a result of a slip or trip – the single most common cause of injuries at work. Furthermore, 95% of over 3-day absences from work due to injury are a result of slips, trips and falls.

This is primarily the reason why smoking is a predominant activity of many employees.
