Slips, Trips, and Falls Training for Employees
Safety training on how to avoid workplace slips, trips and falls reduces the risk of accidents by building good habits and a greater awareness of hazards.
Better everyday decisions

Benefits of Slips, Trips, and Falls Training
Slips, trips, and falls are among the most common and costly workplace injuries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that slips, trips and falls account for 15% of all accidental deaths in the workplace, and are a leading cause of non-fatal injuries.
Providing employees with the knowledge and skills to recognize and avoid potential slip, trip and fall hazards can reduce the likelihood of these incidents occurring in the workplace, which can result in fewer injuries, reduced absenteeism and increased productivity.
Training employees on safety measures to prevent these accidents, such as using appropriate footwear, cleaning up spills promptly, keeping walkways clear and well-lit, appropriate signage and avoiding distractions while walking, should be an essential part of every employer’s health and safety program.
