Slips occur when your foot loses traction with the ground surface due to wearing inappropriate footwear or when walking on slippery floor surfaces such as those that are highly polished, wet or greasy.
Trips occur when you unexpectedly catch your foot on an object or surface. In most cases people trip on low obstacles that are not easily noticed such as uneven edges in flooring, loose materials because of poor housekeeping, untidy tools or cables from electrical equipment.
Falls can result from a slip or trip but many also occur during falls from low heights such as steps, stairs and curbs, falling into a hole or a ditch or into a body of water.
