Slips, trips, and falls are a major cause of preventable injuries and deaths in the workplace.

Potential Hazard
Exposure to wet floors, and possible slips, trips, and falls.

Possible Solutions

  • Maintain floors in a clean and, so far as possible, dry condition, and mats provided where practicable. Walking/Working Surfaces Standard [29 CFR 1910.22(a)(2)].
  • Provide warning signs for wet floor areas [29 CFR 1910.145(c)(2).

Other Recommended Good Practices:

  • Implement a program to provide safe, immediate, clean-up of floor spills.
  • Housekeeping procedures such as only cleaning one side of a passageway at a time, providing good lighting for all halls and stairwells can help reduce accidents.
  • Instruct workers to use the handrail on stairs, to avoid undue speed, and to maintain an unobstructed view of the stairs ahead of them-even if that means requesting help to manage a bulky load.
  • Eliminate uneven floor surfaces.
