Slips, Trips and Falls

Workers can slip when they lose their footing, workers can trip when they catch their foot on or in something, and workers fall when they come down suddenly.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) maintains general industry regulations on walking/working surfaces 1910.22-30 that guard against hazards including clutter, protruding objects, and wet conditions.

Government Regulations:
