Slips, Trips and Falls
Falls from Heights
…the key is to remember that every inch higher you go in elevation, the more caution you should use.
Remember to go up and down steps, stairways and ladders safely, using handrails and handles as necessary. Let us know if lighting becomes an issue in your work area.
Falls Through Openings
This can’t happen to me. Think again! This is an all-too-common event in industrial situations. Be aware of openings in your work area and help us ensure they are properly guarded or covered.
Slips/Trips - Falls on the Same Elevation
It doesn’t sound easy to fall on the same elevation but the fact is that this one of the leading accident causes. Statistics show that the majority (60 percent) of falls happen on the same elevation resulting from slips and trips. The key is to think about where your feet are and watch for things that could cause you to stumble or slip.
- Housekeeping: Keep safe walking areas safe by keeping them clear and wiping up spills.
- Carrying things: Make sure you can see where you are walking.
