20% of disabling occupational injuries are from slips, trips and falls with thousands of fatalities every year. Walking and Working Surfaces in Construction Environments training identifies the hazards of different surfaces and provides the practical information and specific procedures employees need to help prevent slips, trips and falls on the job. It’s easy to take the surfaces we walk and work on for granted, but that would be a big mistake. We depend on these surfaces to provide the support we need to position ourselves properly, use our muscles efficiently, keep our balance and do our work safely.
Topics covered in this program: Include the fundamentals of safe surfaces, walkways and floors, stairs and fixed ladders, scaffolding and more.
