Slips, trips & falls caused 1,400 major injuries to workers in the West Midlands

Slip, trip and fall incidents in the workplace impacted on more than 4,000 lives across the West Midlands last 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 and cost society an estimated £800 million each year. More workplace deaths are triggered by falls from height than any other cause, according to official statistics.
