Trips & Falls Safety

Trips & Falls

Most injuries resulting from falls aren’t caused by falls from overhead, as you might think. They are from falls at ground or floor level where we walk and work.


  • Housekeeping of a high standard is most important to maintain a safe work area.
  • Don’t leave trip hazards in the work area.
  • Keep containers on the job for studs and nuts.
  • Equipment and spare parts should be kept neatly in one place.
  • Remove rubbish and scrap constantly.
  • Have all surplus materials removed on completion of work.

The work surface area

  • Avoid walking or working on irregular rough ground surfaces.
  • The area should be in a condition that you could get a good sure footing.
  • Don’t short cut over rough areas.
