5 Simple Tips to Tread Health and Safely with Treadsafe® Anti-Slip Flooring

In the workplace ‘slips and trips’ are the most common cause of injury and account for over a third of all reported major injury.  Over 40% of all reported injury is to members of the public. HSE statistics suggest that most accidents are slips which happen when floor surfaces are contaminated and become slippery (by water, grease etc) or, have unsuitable surfaces.

slips and trips at work

The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 (Regulation 12) require floors to be suitable, in good condition and free from obstructions. Everyone should be able to move around safely and without risking injury.

There is a legal duty of care to ensure floor safety is covered in your risk assessments to meet the current Health and Safety laws.

  • Check for loose, damaged and worn flooring and replace as needed
  • Floors likely to get wet or prone to  spillages  should be of a type that does not become unduly slippery
  • Make sure that slopes, ramps and steps are clearly visible and have the correct surface
