Slips Trips and Falls in Construction Environments Online Training Course
Most employees don't give much thought to the prospect of slipping, tripping or even falling on the job. Yet these types of accidents account for more workplace injuries annually than any other accident category. Many of these injuries can be disabling... or even fatal. And because there is so much material, so many tools and pieces of equipment, and so much in the way of â€œpartially completedâ€ work, construction sites can be a virtual maze of slip, trip and fall hazards.
Atlantic's training products on "Slips, Trips and Falls in Construction Environments" show employees the types of situations on construction sites that can lead to slips, trips and falls, and what they can do to avoid or prevent these accidents. Topics covered in these products include:
- Center of gravity and balance.
- Trips and slips.
- Walking surfaces.
- Housekeeping and maintenance.
- How to fall properly.
- Personal protective equipment.
- And more.
