This month’s Health & Safety theme is ‘Slips, Trips and Falls’. Did you know that up to seven people are hurt in workplace slips, trips and falls every day and at least one of these unlucky people get so badly hurt, they miss over a month of work. In 2017, there were roughly 1,700 workplace slips, trips and falls. This type of workplace accident, is in actual fact, the second highest single cause of workplace injuries.
In light of the above paragraph, we would encourage all our staff and the general public reading this to take extra caution when entering all workplaces, in particular construction building sites.
