Falls down steps are very common and anyone, such as a meter reader, postman or delivery driver, who has to regularly climb up and down unfamiliar stairways will be well aware of the potential hazards but it will be the unexpected which is most likely to cause an accident.
Liquids spilled and obstructions on treads are quite common and it is important that there is sufficient lighting around steps as well as a hand rail or guards to enable safe walking for both visitors and employees at any public building.
Employers have a duty to prevent work-related injury and industrial accidents but, employees, too should be aware of their own safety and that of their colleagues and report any potential hazards as soon as possible.
Slips and trips can also be an issue in offices - falls down stairs, resulting in broken bones, bruises and sprains, can occur in any building and it is vital for employers to take steps to prevent such accidents.
