Grip The Ground
A slip is the loss of friction between the sole of your footwear and the surface you are walking on.
A common example of a serious slipping hazard is the floor of a food service kitchen, made of a non-porous material for sanitation. Despite best efforts, the floor becomes damp from steam and greasy from airborne oil. A hurried worker with slippery shoes falls and suffers fractures.
Seemingly safe footwear can be unexpectedly hazardous.
You should examine your footwear regularly for defects and damage. Worn-out shoes can cause a fall. A nail in the sole of a non-conductive boot makes it conductive after all, and a leaky boot won’t protect you against chemical exposure.
Find out what kind of footwear you should be using to protect yourself against the hazards of your job.
