Slips, trips and falls are prevalent, vexing and costly injuries - despite companies implementing a range of controls - from engineering, surface design, footwear to policies and procedures. While these strategies help, trailing indicators reveal these only help to a degree. Experience worldwide with numerous organizations has shown that a significant key to prevention - with aging workforces, employees transitioning to tasks, working outside, with slippery conditions and more - is placing workers' in greater control of their own slip/trip/fall safety.
This Webinar focuses on proven organizational approaches that:
• Boosts slip/trip/fall hazard recognition
• Improves balance while on the move
• Develops company and individual plans for preventing a range of slips, trips and falls to those who work in plant and in more exposed environments.
