This debate, co hosted between the LSE US Centre and the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime

9.2 Other hazards

9.2.1 Stumbles, falls, etc.

It is recommended, therefore, that boots should be worn to protect the feet and ankles, and that outer clothing should be of a suitable nature to minimise the chance of cuts, scratches, and abrasions being sustained. Wearing gloves will minimise damage to hands.
