A large number of employees are injured annually in business accidents caused by tripping and falling on the workplace. This is not only annoying for the employee, but also for the employer. It increases costs, disrupts project planning, and puts pressure on the team by ensuring that the absence is taken care of. It is therefore in everyone’s interest to avoid accidents as much as possible and sometimes it can be with small means.
According to a study from 2018, 44 of the employees on the shop floor in a factory, workplace or outside location will have experienced tripping or falling.
Other survey figures show that falling and/or tripping in the workplace is the most frequently mentioned cause that has resulted in an absence of four days of more. In nearly 30 of accidents with longer absenteeism, the injury was caused by slipping, stumbling or falling at the workplace.
Also it has been proven that with loose laces, sweat feet rise faster and you can sprain your foot faster. And every time lacing bows can lead to unsafe situations on the workplace floor.
