Injuries from slips, trips, and falls can include sprains, bruises, concussions, fractures, and even burns and cuts. Further, in restaurants, bars, and pubs, slips, trips, and falls are the costliest workplace incidents. Pain and suffering, disability, stress, and even a loss or change of employment can result.
One-quarter of workplace injuries in restaurants, bars, and pubs are from slips, trips, and falls, costing the industry $20 million in claim costs in the last five years.WorkSafeBC
