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 recently upgraded course to strengthen connection to important safety concepts, focuses on three common types of falls – falls at the same level, falls on stairs and falls from low rise utility ladders. These fall hazards exist in most work sectors including offices, service industry, manufacturing, agri-business and warehousing.
Who Should Take This Course?All workers, including 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.
