Systematic Slip, Trip, and Fall Prevention

Systematic Slip, Trip, and Fall Prevention

Slips, trips, and falls have been a major incident cause across industries for as long as causes have been tracked. Unfortunately, even though new technologies are available, accident rates remain high. This session will approach the issue from the perspective that a relatively straightforward set of factors need to be carefully and consistently managed to reduce risks in this area, and that going beyond a superficial treatment of seemingly obvious measures is essential for real progress in this area. This session will cover the key things that must be understood, considered, and implemented for the prevention of slips, trips, and falls. We will focus on the key areas of floor-related issues and footwear, as well as the often-overlooked area of walking style. Each participant will leave with practical measures they can implement at their facility immediately. Though this session is focused on same-level falls and will not cover elevated location fall protection, many of the points covered will be useful for those seeking to prevent falls from heights as well.

During this live webcast, David Natalizia, of Dynamic Safety, Inc, will equip you with a big-picture approach to slip, trip, and fall prevention, stressing several key approaches to risk reduction in this area.
