Slips, trips & falls cause 251 major injuries to workers in Surrey

Slip, trip and fall incidents in the workplace caused 251 major injuries to workers in Surrey 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.
