2. Slips and Trips
Here we look at what slips and trips are and look at how to avoid such workplace accidents. We explain through video, graphics and images many of the potential dangers that may make a slip, a trip or a fall more likely to happen - including those to do with the environment, human factors and housekeeping.
Nearly a third of all major fall injuries involve ladders. In this section we highlight the importance of always using the correct equipment and choosing the least dangerous option if you do need to increase your height. Step-by-step guides show you how to site and use step-ladders and ladders properly in order to avoid workplace accidents.
This training will have ensured a better understanding of why slips, trips and falls happen and shown you what falls prevention involves and how you can do to reduce the likelihood of workplace accidents happening.
