Slips trips and falls

Slips, trips, and falls continue to be the primary cause of employee injuries at the University of Waterloo. As we all have a role to play in the prevention of these injuries, the Slip Trip and Falls Program aims to decrease these incidents.

We encourage all employees to report any unsafe conditions to Plant Operations at ext. 33793.

See the Slips Trips and Falls Program for more information.
