Nurses and doctors using slip-resistant and safety shoe to avoid injuries on the workplace

Regardless if the injury is minor or major, protecting and avoiding risks within healthcare workplaces creates a safe working environment. There are a variety of reasons why healthcare workers may be injured on the job. These include:

  • Working with dangerous equipment, being exposed to hazardous materials
  • Working in high-pressure environments
  • Employer negligence, such as failing to provide proper safety equipment or training
  • Employees are often on their feet for long periods of time, which can lead to fatigue and other problems
  • Wearing ill-fitting or inappropriate footwear
  • Working in an environment with slippery or uneven surfaces
  • Not following safety procedures or protocols, and more.

There are a few things that employers can do to help reduce the risk of foot injuries in the healthcare industry:

Firstly, they can make sure that employees have adequate rest breaks and are not on their feet for excessively long periods of time.

Additionally, they can provide employees with appropriate footwear that is comfortable and supports the feet.

Finally, employers can create a safe working environment by reducing potential hazards and ensuring that floors are clean and dry.

Workplace Injuries Impact Profitability

It is important that employers in the healthcare industry take steps to minimise the risks and ensure that staff are properly protected. Injuries in the workplace are not only extremely painful for the individual, but they can also be quite costly for the company. Direct and indirect costs include: 

  • The cost of workplace injuries can range from the cost of medical treatment to 
  • The loss of productivity while an employee is recovering, to 
  • Potential lawsuit costs if the injury is severe enough. 


Mitigation of risk and accident prevention for nurses, doctors, midwives, floor staff and other healthcare workers are the leading methods for avoiding these costs, improving safety, comfort and profitability.
