20% of disabling occupational injuries, and thousands of fatalities every year occur from Slips, Trips and Falls
Walking and Working Surfaces training identifies the hazards of different surfaces and provides the practical information and specific procedures employees need to help prevent slips, trips and falls on the job. It’s easy to take the surfaces we walk and work on for granted, but that would be a big mistake. We depend on these surfaces to provide the support we need to position ourselves properly, use our muscles efficiently, keep our balance and do our work safely. Yet slips, trips and falls continue to make up the majority of on-the-job accidents and most of these accidents could have been prevented.
Topics covered in this program:
Include the fundamentals of safe surfaces, walkways and floors, stairs and fixed ladders, scaffolding and more.
