Preventing Slips, Trips & Falls
The majority (66%) of falls happen on the same level resulting from slips and trips. The remaining 34% are falls from a height. The course focuses on the two most common types of falls: falls at the same level and falls on stairs. These fall hazards exist in most workplaces including offices, service sector, manufacturing, agri-business, and construction.
