||The objective of this project was to establish the underlying reasons for slip, trip and fall accidents to professional drivers. Work involved examining and measuring various types of vehicles, measuring the slipperiness of a variety of surfaces, interviewing drivers and managers, and conducting focus group sessions to confirm the interview findings and consider how falls from vehicles can be reduced. Contents: background; methodology; results and discussion (large goods vehicles, vans, forklift trucks); wider influences affecting driver behaviour; footwear; conclusions and recommendations. Appendices include measurements and test data, slipperiness assessment test methods, interview and focus group schedules, and the HSE approach to the assessment of slip risk.
