This training video will help educate your workers on the OSHA General Industry Walking and Working Surfaces protocol. Since workplace slips, trips and falls account for a large percentage of occupational injuries, focusing on reducing those injuries is the goal of our training. The training video is broken into 5 key areas:|
Each of these 5 key areas are discussed in detail with a focus on avoiding slips, trips and falls. Through this training your employees will learn:
- The basics of safe work surfaces including hazards such as liquids, grease, spills, and even dry materials like dirt, sawdust and more
- Walkways and floors - We discuss trip and fall hazards associated with floors and how can we avoid injuries in those areas. A big area of focus is also on good workplace housekeeping.
- Stairs and fixed ladders - Falling down stairs can always be a serious issue but even more so at work where employees might be carrying tools or other items. Trainees are taught not to run on stairs or skip stairs while they are using the staircase in order to reduce possible tripping or falling. Also, trainees will understand how a "fixed ladder" is defined and how to inspect and maintain their fall protection devices.
- Portable ladders - Since ladders are always a source of potential injury, the issue of ladder safety is emphasized on how to properly use a ladder all the while avoiding accidents or injuries. Further instruction is given on how to inspect a portable ladder as well as how to set up a ladder properly.
- Scaffolding - Both "supported" and "suspended" scaffolding is discussed, as well as "vertical lifelines" and "horizontal lifelines".
Trips, slips and falls are oftentimes avoidable accidents. Through education like this training, your employees can learn to spot hazards, and avoid getting injured on the job. The idea of "good housekeeping" is focused on in this training and is the key to preventing slip, trip and fall accidents and injuries.
