The Slips, Trips and Falls 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.
