The article presents guidelines for managing risks in the transport and logistics sector. A good management system will help identify problem areas, act on decisions made and check that the steps taken have been effective. It is important to work with employees to identify areas that they think are a slip or trip risk and set goals for improvement. Workers should be trained to recognise risks, clearly mark potential hazards and know how to take action. Responsibilities must be given to ensure that areas of the workplace are kept safe. In addition, a regular talk to employees about slip or trip risks is necessary.
