Falls are the third leading cause of disabling work injury for all workers in the United States. Slips and trips without falling can cause additional work injuries. These injuries include strains and sprains that happen when a person tries to regain balance after a slip or a trip. Healthcare workers have the highest rate of nonfatal slips, trips, and falls of any industry. High rates may be the result of providing assistance with activities of daily living (bathing, showering, toileting) during which healthcare workers may be exposed to wet, slippery floors or to clients with gait and balance problems. Learning how to prevent slips, trips, and falls will help you to avoid injury.
