Slips, Trips, and Falls

Publication Date: 
November 02 / 2015

Slips, trips, and falls remain a major cause of injury in the workplace. Risk is higher from autumn to spring, with most incidents occurring in winter. During winter months, WSCC manages an average of one claim per day. At least one incident during each winter month is due to a slip, trip, or fall, resulting in major time loss from work.
