Taking steps against workplace slips
Slips and trips continue to be the biggest cause of workplace injuries, so it is really important that footwear being offered to your workforce offers them the right level of slip resistance.
The Health & Safety Laboratory has launched a new footwear rating scheme called 'GRIP.' GRIP provides free information to health & safety managers so that they can make informed, evidence based decisions before purchasing resistance footwear.
The Health & Safety Executive's new white paper 'Get a GRIP' explains how the scheme works and where you can get further information about which footwear has been rated.
