Slip Trip and Fall Hazards
Slips often occur when there isn’t enough friction or traction between a person’s footwear and the surface they are traversing.
Trips cause accidents when the person’s foot hits an unseen obstruction or if their foot makes contact with a soft surface and loses their balance or gets caught up in a cord or rope.
Falls can occur because of the above-mentioned slips or trips or if the floor or surface a person is stepping onto collapses or moves. This often happens when a person is descending from a height and results in them crashing to the ground, causing serious injury.

Common Risks Inside North Sydney Buildings
Many people fail to realise the dangers of slip-fall accidents inside buildings in North Sydney and right across Australia. For instance, uneven flooring, changes to floor covering styles from carpet to tiles, or sloping surfaces are hazardous. If a surface is poorly maintained, slippery due to the wrong cleaning products, or spills are not cleaned up promptly, they can pose a danger to the unwary. Public Liability Insurance should be in place to cover an unexpected claim.
Floor spills in North Sydney shops, supermarkets and buildings where people access services etc., can include water, oil or grease, paper or dust. Trip-fall hazards also include a lack of space, a cluttered aisle, areas not appropriately lit, and inadequate warning signs for steps and edges. Loose floor rugs, cords and cables are risky as well.
