Preventing Slips, Trips & Falls

Falls from a height are responsible for 34% of falls, while most falls (66%) happen on the same level because of slips and trips. This course focuses on three common types of falls – falls at the same level, falls from utility ladders and falls on stairs. These fall hazards exist in most work sectors including offices, service industry, manufacturing, agri-business and warehousing.

Who Should Take This Course?

All workers, managers, supervisors and health and safety committee members must be aware of slip, trip and fall hazards as part of their workplace hazard assessments duties.
