Slips, Trips & Falls

Slips, Trips and Falls (STF) are the second highest single cause of workplace injuries. In 2014, there were more than 1,400 slips, trips and falls reported to the HSA. 24% of those incidents led to the injured person missing over a month from work.

Slips, trips and falls (excluding falls from height) were the most common workplace accident type dealt with by the Injuries Board in 2013 accounting for over one quarter (26.5%) of all awards for workplace accidents.
