One workplace hazard people often forget about is the risk of falling due to slipping or tripping. Falling in the workplace is a leading cause of injury, and even a small fall may have serious consequences. Identifying and correcting fall hazards, along with paying attention to our paths of travel, can prevent fall related injuries and save lives. Learn how significant fall risks are, as well as how to prevent them, per California OSHA regulations, through this on-demand video training.

In 2015, California OSHA reported there were more than 20,000 injuries caused by slips, trips, and falls. This number accounted for over 20% of the total injuries reported. Wet and slippery floors, cluttered work areas, extension cords, improper footwear, running, and not paying attention are all hazards that increase the chance of slips, trips, and falls. To understand how to prevent these injuries, you must first know how they occur. This course demonstrates the three main factors contributing to a loss of balance: gravity, friction, and momentum. The course continues to show learners how to prevent falls by correcting hazards and using safe work practices.

Slips and trips may initially seem like a minor risk when compared to some of the other hazards you face on the job, but they pose significant dangers that cannot be ignored. Utilize the information presented in this training lesson and learn how to better protect yourself from slips, trips, and falls.
