Slips, trips & falls caused more than 350 major injuries to workers in Sussex

Slip, trip and fall incidents in the workplace caused 350 major injuries to workers in Sussex and cost one person their life 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.
