Comments (0)

It should be the goal of every employer, property possessor, and property owner to prevent Georgia slip and falls from occurring by ensuring their grounds are safe and that they provide a safe work environment. However, employees also have some responsibility for reducing their risks of slipping and falling.

What can employees do to reduce their chances of falling at work?

Unfortunately, not every fall can be prevented by en employee. Some fall hazards may be unseen; however, employees can do the following to improve their safety at work:

  • Wear appropriate shoes
  • Walk safely
  • Pay attention to surroundings
  • Walk at a good pace and take your time
  • Put things away after getting them out
  • Close file drawers and desk drawers after use
  • Keep walkways free from clutter
  • Report broken sidewalks or stairwell handrails
  • Walk up and down stairs carefully and using a handrail
  • Don’t carry anything that blocks your view
  • Make sure there is sufficient lighting
  • Report poor and improper lighting to employers
  • Tell employers when there is a hazard or any unsafe condition
  • Report spills and wet floors immediately
  • Never stand on a chair

When employees pay attention to what they are doing, they can prevent the majority of slip and fall accidents and injuries from occurring. However, there are many hidden dangers that an employee may not see. If you were injured through no fault of your own, please call Georgia slip and fall attorney Shane Smith today for a free consultation at (770) 487-8999.
