Specific Workplace Conditions That Cause Slips, Trips & Falls

Slips and trips may be caused by certain factors in your workplace. These factors include:

  • Environmental conditions. Workplace environmental conditions are the surrounding physical conditions in which an employee works and include conditions such as lighting, workplace noise level, floor design, and degree of cleanliness.
  • Equipment. Employees can slip or trip over equipment that is not properly positioned or secured.
  • Work practices. If work practices, such as lifting and transporting materials from one location to another, are performed without observing safety precautions, injuries can result.
  • Individual (human) factors, such as an individual's age, eyesight, and overall health.
