Slip Trips and Falls Toolbox Talk

Definitions:

 Slips: The loss of balance caused by too little friction or traction between your feet (footwear) and the walking or working surface.

 Trips: A loss of balance caused from a person’s foot contacting an object or dropping to a lower level while moving forward or backwards.

 Falls: The result of a trip or slip that causes the body to loose balance and strike a surface or object.
