Hazards and Risks

During the course, learners will be challenged to assess work sites to find their risk level. Slips and trips can be caused by many environmental factors and the threat can be dynamic; weather conditions can affect it, for example. Learners are introduced to some less common causes of slips and trips that they may not have considered.

Control Measures

Control measures are put in place to reduce risks and help prevent harm. When it comes to slips and trips, many of them are common sense, such as handling trailing cables properly – but they will be different for every situation. By putting the learner into a range of working environments, the course helps learners identify good control measures.


Almost all slips, trips and falls in the workplace are easily prevented. The first step is identifying the location of any potential hazards. Carrying out a risk assessment can help with this and is a very effective initial action towards preventing slips and trips in the workplace. Many preventative measures are simple to put in place.

The Importance of Slips and Trips Training

Slips, trips and falls account for nearly a third of non-fatal work-related accidents. They are one of the most common (and most preventable) causes of injuries in the workplace. While few of these result in fatalities, that is not to say that slips and trips shouldn’t be taken seriously, or that they cannot cause permanent damage to your workforce and organisation.

It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that staff members are provided with a safe environment to work in, and to undertake regular risk assessments and offer training to this effect. Employers that do not offer this protection face legal action, not to mention the damage a serious slip, trip or fall could cause to the organisation’s morale and reputation at large.


If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

According to the HSE, slips and trips account for around a third of non-fatal workplace accidents in the UK each year. This converts into thousands of injuries, ranging from minor to fatal. With the right training and control measures, almost every one of these accidents can be easily prevented.

You reduce the risk of slips, trips and falls by making sure the correct health and safety control measures are in place. This means providing good lighting, better quality footwear if required, and practising good housekeeping. Trip and slip hazards should be removed if possible, and if not, properly signposted so people are extra careful.

You can stop your floor being slippery by installing protective flooring, using anti-skid mats in areas likely to become slippery, clearly displaying Wet Floor signs and ensuring all spills are cleaned up immediately. This will help you to avoid slips and the associated injuries. It is particularly important during wet weather.
