Why is Slips Trips and Falls Safety training important?

Remember, slips, trips and falls account for most of the injuries in the workplace. Many times minor injuries occur. OSHA says that 200,000 serious injuries happen every year. These serious injuries, mostly to the ankle, knee, or back can leave employees with long-term problems.

Fall prevention measures can be general, varied, specific, or elaborate; and the recognition, planning, and implementation of a sound fall-prevention program is the first step in reducing falls in the workplace. Please remember that even falls from relatively low heights have left individuals with brain damage after hitting their head.

OSHA requires employers to Identify and evaluate these hazards in the workplace, and correct, repair, or guard against these hazardous conditions.

Employees are encouraged to team with management and other workers to assess the workplace.  A good rule of thumb is to stand in your work area and think “how could I get hurt today?”  Even a simple, annoying situation can become much worse in the presence of an emergency or unexpected event.
