Employee Slips on Shampoo

 An employee was walking into the men’s restroom in the workout center when she stepped on a quarter sized amount of shampoo on floor.  This caused her to slide forward and stub her right big toe on the metal base of a bench near the lockers. She was wearing sneakers at the time.

Factors to consider at your site or on your project include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Keep your eyes on your walk path to avoid tripping over uneven surfaces or items on the floor.

Consider this example as you complete today’s work activities. 

Think about the hazards associated with your particular work, and the steps that can be taken to increase safety on your job.
