Course Introduction

Slips and trips account for about a third of all workplace injuries, with injuries involving arm, wrist and ankle fractures the most common. However, they can result in more serious injuries or fatalities. Falls are another major cause of injuries and fatalities in the workplace if the proper precautions are not taken. Slips, trips and falls can affect you regardless of the industry you work in or whether you work indoors or outdoors.

This Slips, Trips and Falls Online Training course takes on average 30 minutes to complete.

Course Content

The Slips, Trips and Falls training course explains what slips, trips and falls are and common hazards that cause them at work. The course uses hazard-spotting interactions to teach employees to identify hazards, and uses other types of interactions to help people understand what to do to eliminate or reduce the risks.  Sometimes, accidents occur because people have not taken hazards seriously. The course uses case studies and interactions to highlight the importance of paying attention to hazards and everyone’s responsibilities for preventing slip, trip and fall accidents. Responsibilities include good housekeeping, wearing appropriate footwear, paying attention to where you are going, complying with safety measures and reporting hazards, near misses and accidents.

The course is suitable for anyone who occasionally has to work at height as part of their job, for example, standing on a stepstool or using a ladder to change a lightbulb. It emphasises the importance of first avoiding work at height where possible. But if it cannot be avoided, it describes how you can keep yourself safe. Our Working at Height course goes into more detail on safety measures when working at height.
