What are some of the common on-the-job slip and fall accidents in Wisconsin?

Most people wake up every day and head to work with no worries of injury on their minds. It is the employer’s responsibility to provide a safe working environment for their employees. Unfortunately, many employers do not provide a safe work environment and as a result, their employees will become injured in a slip and fall accident.

Slip and fall incidents that occur on the job can cause serious injuries. Many victims of a slip and fall suffer injuries that are very serious, causing lifelong complications. Some of the common causes for slip and fall accidents at the workplace include:

  • Office mishaps. Most people think that slip and falls only happen at physically demanding jobs such as construction or maintenance. On the contrary, a large number of slip and fall accidents happen in an office setting. Wires, bunched up carpet, furnishings, and office clutter are all common causes of slip and fall accidents.
  • Spills. Many jobs require workers to be around chemical and liquids. These liquids can cause the floors to be slippery if they spill. If not properly cleaned up in a quick manner, liquids spilled can pose a great hazard in the workplace.
  • Working high up. Workers who are required to use ladders or scaffolds high off the ground are at a great risk for serious injuries. Their falls generally have devastating consequences.
