Combatting slips and trips

Slips, trips and falls can result in both fatal and non-fatal workplace accidents – and they are among the most frequently occurring types of accident.

Up to 36 percent of European companies have acknowledged an increased risk of slips, trips and falls in their workplace, according to the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA). Brady proposes that a variety of reliable and highly visible safety identification solutions can help to decrease this risk.

According to the company, these include:

  • Floor markings: easily identify safe walking routes, obstacles and hazardous areas in the workplace.
  • Safety signs: a simple safety sign can prevent costly workplace accidents if it is clearly visible, draws attention and is easy to understand.
  • Spill control: stop spills before they cause workplace accidents.
  • Services: an on-site visit or audit with specialists, such as those from Brady, can aid the selection of the correct type of solutions that fit an individual company’s needs.
