Health & safety - Operational & site safety

Slips trips & falls

Slips, trips and falls are the largest cause of accidents in the UK cement manufacturing industry, yet simple control measures can greatly reduce the risk of injury.

The cement industry health and safety steering group, made up of representatives from member companies, trade unions and the Health and Safety Commission, examined a number of these accidents and identified the causes. Their recommendations are published in Guidance to Prevent Slips, Trips & Falls, available as a free download from the downloads section of this website.

The publication advises on general maintenance, housekeeping, behavioural safety, inspections, hazard reporting and installation of new plant or equipment.

The recommendations and guidance are primarily targeted at the industry's own employees, but some will also apply to contractors.
