Slips, trips & falls cost the UK around £800M per year

Slip, trip and fall incidents in the workplace cost 40 workers their lives last year and cost society an estimated £800 million each year, HSE warned today as it launched a hard-hitting campaign.

HSE figures show that slips and trips are the most common cause of major workplace injury in Britain. More workplace deaths are triggered by falls from height than any other cause, according to official statistics.
