Why it's so important
Australian slip and fall studies conducted over the last ten years cover trends for a specific groups of people. Many of the groups studied are statistically far more prone to this type of injury.
The elderly, children and working people have a higher risk of being injured and suffering more severe and longer-lasting injuries.
Globally, slips, trips and falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury and death after traffic accidents.
In Australia, deaths from slips and falls are five times more prevalent than deaths due to a fire.
Adults over 70, especially women, have a highest mortality rate resulting from falls.
A university study found that in just a three-year period, falls in buildings increased by almost 15%.
The two top places where slips, trips and falls occur are in the home and in nursing / retirement home facilities.
Slips, trips and falls are the second leading cause of workplace injuries, accounting for over 20% of all injuries.
