HSE People Panel – Christian Harris – Slips and Trips

Christian Harris is a passionate believer that proactive safety and risk management powers business performance. Invest in understanding and improving risk in your business & you will reap significant rewards.

Founder of Slip Safety Services, host of the Safety & Risk Success Podcast, partner with leading insurers, brokers, lawyers to name a few, Christian is a knowledgeable and well-respected member of the safety community. He is also a prolific content creator as anyone following him on Linkedin can attest.

In May 2012, Christian suffered a serious accident that wasn’t his fault – he was run over by a car that lost control and mounted the kerb. This experience drives him on to make an impact to stop unexpected injuries happening to people around the world. The biggest cause of accident, injury and insurance claim in most sectors is slips-and-falls, so this is where he concentrates his time.

Over the last 3 years, Christian and his team have prevented £10m of slip-and-fall claim costs per year. But he is impatient to do more: that £10m represents less than 0.5% of the total annual slip-and-fall claim costs in the UK alone. Christian’s mission is to reduce the number of these accidents globally by 500,000+ a year.
