The IP was walking across the designated pedestrian walkway to the vehicle ‘pull up’ point outside the weighbridge to conduct inspection and inductions. The IP tripped on a slightly raised section of asphalt and fell forwards, in doing so they tried to break their fall by putting their hands out resulting in a sprained wrist, cuts and grazes to their hand, knees, and head.
- IP had not been inducted to site
- IP did not have a risk assessment for the task
- The raised level is historic and caused by an additional layer of asphalt added to the road
