ANNOUNCEMENTS and ITEMS OF INTEREST
Slips, Trips, and Falls
You slip when you lose your footing, you trip when you catch your foot on or in something, and you fall when you come down suddenly. Spills, steps, rain, loose mats, and rugs, are some of the common causes of slips, trips, and falls. In addition, poor lighting and clutter can cause injuries such as sprains, strains, bruises, bumps, fractures, scratches, and cuts.
Tips to Stay Safe
- If you see something you might slip or trip on, fix it if you can or tell your supervisor right away.
- Clean up spills and anything slippery.
- Clear walkways and stairs of anything that might be a slip or trip hazard, such as cords, wires, empty boxes, and clutter.
- Make sure that floor mats lay flat rather than wrinkled or bunched.
- Use handrails when possible as you walk up and down steps.
