Walking and Working Surfaces
17 min | by Marcom Group
Without fail, each year slips, trips and falls are the number one contributor to on-the-job workplace incidents. Most of these accidents are preventable and this safety training details the ways in which organizations can prevent slips and falls in the workplace.
We depend on the surfaces that we walk and work on for a lot of things…to provide the support we need to position ourselves properly, to help us use our muscles efficiently, to keep our balance and do our work safely. But we often take their condition for granted, and that is a big mistake.
Year after year slips, trips and falls make up the majority of on-the-job accidents. They cause almost 20% of disabling occupational injuries, and thousands of fatalities annually. Yet most of these accidents could have been prevented.
MARCOM's Walking and Working Surfaces safety training identifies the hazards that are associated with different surfaces, and provides the practical information and specific procedures employees need to help prevent slips, trips and falls on the job.
