Course Introduction

The focus of the EssentialSkillz Slips, Trips and Falls online training is to prevent accidents. Hazard spotting exercises, case studies and other forms of interaction are used to encourage the workforce to think about their role in preventing hazards which could result in slips, trips and falls.

Course Content

The Slips and Trips training covers the importance of housekeeping and cleaning in preventing hazards, and the role of appropriate footwear in environments where it is difficult to maintain a slip-free surface at all times.

In relation to falls, the course provides information on the use of steps and step-ladders, with the emphasis on avoiding work at height first, and secondly on using an appropriate means of access where it cannot be avoided.

Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Slips, Trips and Falls training can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation.
