Few news items about slips, trips and falls


Slips, trips and falls result in thousands of injuries every year.

Few injuries caused by slips, trips and falls make it into the news. This is because they are cuts, bruises, fractures and dislocations - not things news items report. BUT, in 2009-10, more than 3100 Victorian workers suffered serious injuries as a result of a slip, trip or fall. Many thousand more received less serious injuries caused by slipping, tripping or falling.
