Safety in the storage and handling of steel and other metal stock
Many accidents, some resulting in death and serious injury, continue to occur during the storage and handling of steel and other metal stock. They cause enormous social and economic cost over and above the human tragedy involved. It is in everyone's interest that they are reduced. Accident investigations often show that these injuries could have been avoided. This revised guidance is aimed at directors, owners, managers and supervisors and pays particular attention to the most common hazards, including (un)loading of delivery vehicles, storage systems, workplace transport, mechanical lifting...
Évaluation de systèmes d’amortissement du roulis sur les bateaux de pêche semi-hauturière du Québec
La comparaison entre les statistiques des accidents mortels dans l'industrie halieutique et celles des autres catégories professionnelles révèle que la pêche est l'un des métiers les plus dangereux. À bord d'un navire, le travail est accompli dans des conditions difficiles, sur une plateforme en mouvement, exposée aux intempéries et glissante. Pour des raisons de sécurité et de facilité d'exécution durant les opérations de pêche, les travailleurs cherchent à diminuer l'influence...
Slip-related characterization of gait kinetics: Investigation of pervious concrete as a slip-resistant walking surface
Slip-related falls are a significant health problem, particularly on icy walking surfaces. Pervious concrete, a material allowing rapid exfiltration of melted ice from the walking surface, may help reduce slipping risk. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to compare slipping characteristics of traditional and pervious concrete walking surfaces in icy conditions using kinetic biomechanical analyses. We hypothesized that pervious concrete, in comparison to traditional concrete, would be characterized by less severe ice-related alteration of friction during gait. Healthy young participants performed...
Biomechanical characteristics of slipping during unconstrained walking, turning, gait initiation and termination
Slipping biomechanics was investigated on both non-contaminated and oil-contaminated surfaces during unconstrained straight-line walking ('walking'), turning, gait initiation and termination. In walking, backward slipping was more frequent, whereas forward slipping was more frequent when turning. Stopping and gait initiation engendered only forward and backward slipping, respectively. Based on slip distance and sliding velocity, severity of forward slipping was least in walking than for the other gait tasks, whereas the tasks had similar effects on backward slipping. Relative to the dry...
Development of a more accurate assessment of roughness parameters for flooring
Slips and trips are the most common cause of major injuries at work and they occur in all workplaces; 95% of reportable major slips result in broken bones. In a typical year, slips and trips account for over 33% of all reported major injuries and approximately 20% of over-3-day injuries to employees.

HSE's new slips and trips e-learning package (STEP)
HSE's new STEP tool is an eLearning package providing slips and trips guidance through interactive learning. It provides an easy way to learn about slips and trips, how they are caused, why preventing them is important and how to tackle them. STEP includes quizzes, videos, animations, case studies and interactive sequences to enhance the learning experience. Completing this package will aid understanding of slips and trips allowing informed decision making on the actions required to reduce injuries.
