Slips, Trips, and Falls





Description:

Accident report studies, conducted by risk management organizations, indicate that the majority of reportable accidents are the result of veteran employees failing to pay attention or trying to shortcut the fundamental safety practices they learned when they first started their job. With this in mind, the Safety Series is designed to remind employees of the potential risks that may exist during the performance of their jobs. Rather than introducing safety training, the Safety Series provides a reminder of good safety practices, or “refresher” training, aimed at fulfilling OSHA requirements of regular safety meetings for field staff. Beyond the personal benefits of employee participation in safety training, employers can experience a significant reduction in lost work time and worker’s compensation claims due to injuries. In addition, less time is lost completing and filing accident reports, with an added benefit of reduced insurance premiums, leading to significant financial savings.


The Slips, Trips and Falls Safety Course is intended to help prevent some of the more common, yet preventable accidents that occur in the workplace and home. Employees are reminded that they are just as responsible for their personal safety as their employer. The course includes reminders to avoid common sprains, strains and back injuries along with practices to avoid slip, trip and fall injuries in the workplace and home.
