Slips, Trips and Falls for Construction
Chances are you have slipped or tripped at least once in your life. If you were lucky, you may have caught your balance in time to avoid falling. Most people have experienced a painful bump or bruise from some kind of fall. Falls that are more serious can cause injuries like broken bones or concussions. Some falls can even kill a person! Your employer wants you to return to your home at the end of each shift in the same healthy condition in which you arrived. However, the only way that can happen is if everyone in your workplace takes responsibility for slip, trip and fall safety. The good news is that the things you can do to minimize risks are fairly simple and easy to remember. This course will teach you what to do to avoid injuries and make your workplace safer.
