Animation from our slips, trips and falls coure

Both you and your employer have a legal obligation towards the health and safety of all workers, visitors, and members of the public who might be affected by the work being carried out – this includes preventing slips, trips, and falls. In this section, we will look at everyone's responsibilities, hazards and the accident book.

Slips and trips mapping

Slips and Trips are the most common cause of injury to employees in the workplace, but they also cause over half of all injuries to members of the public in open workplaces – like shops and hospitals. The rest of this section is all about slip and trip hazards and the responsibility you have to deal with them.

Falls from height can be incredibly dangerous and are the leading cause of workplace fatalities. They’re also responsible for countless spinal injuries, broken bones, twisted ankles, sprains, and strains. In the rest of this section, we’re going to see what you need to do to stay safe whilst using them.

simple cause related to Health andf Safe

I would like to comment about working from ladders, you state 1 to 4 working height ratioI am retired from Fire Service after 30 years we always worked 1 to 3 working height ratio, but we used jets off them and carried people down etc.....always pitch ladder 1/3 working height

Good solid advice

Being from an engineering and construction environment it is a topic commonly highlighted, however in my view the biggest danger to H&S risk is complacency. Too many people are killed or seriously injured in carrying their day to day tasks. Keep up the good work

Very useful.

Very useful training.

I thought the training was very good, its made me more aware of slips and trips in my workplace and at home. I was surprised about the high figure of accidents that people have when climbing ladders.

A good realistic training course

This is really important to learn and have in the workplace. Safety is important.

Why is this training important?


It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

In line with the stipulations of the broader Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, that calls for adequate training and provisions for the health and safety of all employees, this kind of training ensures employers are fulfilling their duty to protect staff from avoidable accidents:

It shall be the duty of every employer to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable -

i) the health, safety and welfare at work of all his employees

ii) the provision of such information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of his employees;

iii) the provision and maintenance of a working environment for his employees that is, so far as is reasonably practicable, safe, without risks to health, and adequate as regards facilities and arrangements for their welfare at work.

Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, Section 2 (1)
