Overview

Many of us go through our work day and think very little, if at all, about the potential of and aftermath from slipping, tripping or falling at our job. A slip, trip or fall, although seemingly harmless, can be incredibly costly in terms of lost productivity, financial resources and broken bones, sprains or worse. According to OSHA, most general industry incidents involve slips, trips and falls. They cause 15% of all accidental deaths and are second only to motor vehicles as a cause of fatalities.

The course discusses maintaining balance and explains one’s center of gravity, as well as how that can be impacted. The course also demonstrates the nature of a variety of walking surfaces, housekeeping and maintenance best practices, how to choose and wear appropriate footwear, and how one can fall with minimal risk.
