Did you have a gravity check at work?
When your foot connects with a slippery floor, you can expect a gravity check just seconds later. The most common work-related injuries are related to slips and falls. Many of these cases also include some foreign objects or matter in the pathway. Falling at work can cause a number of problems that vary around the fall.

How far did you fall?
What part of your body was hurt?
Depending on the answer to these questions determines the severity of the injury and what is needed to treat it moving forward. Falls have the ability to cause broken bones or damages to joints because of your body weight landing on a part of your body when you fall.
