Slips, trips and falls checklist
HSE produce a slips, trips and falls checklist.
It will will help you identify slip and trip hazards in your workplace and decide what action to take. It will be of benefit to anyone who assesses and manages slips and trips at work.
The checklist provides examples of hazards that can be found in and around workplaces, and suggests actions that you can take to resolve them. The list tries to cover as many slip and trip hazards as possible. Some may not apply to you, while you may come across others not mentioned here, but which you will need to consider. Room has been left on the checklist for you to add any hazards that are specific to your workplace.
To get the most from the checklist, you will need to walk through your workplace, including the outside grounds as appropriate, speak to union and employee safety representatives, workers and others to get their views of hazards and risks in the workplace, and then together decide what you could practically do to put them right. It is important to take action once a hazard has been identified.
