Slipping on Snow at Work

In the past few years, we have experienced some of the coldest winters on record. In the winter of 2009-10, the Met Office recorded it as the coldest for over 30 years, and this year 2010-11 has not been far behind. With these particularly adverse weather conditions, accidents inevitably occur. Among the many different types of accidents, unfortunately there are many reported in the workplace where employers have not followed proper guidelines and put their employees at risk. As a consequence, many employees have suffered very serious injuries due to slipping on ice and snow at work that should have been removed or gritted.

The law states that all employers must make all surfaces and land completely safe for work.
