Slip Trips Prevention Training

  1. 1. IIPP Quarterly Health & Safety Training Slips & Trips PreventionAccording to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, slips, trips, and falls accountedfor nearly one in four lost workdays in the United States. Many of our facilitiesprimarily consist of stairs and hard surfaces (stone, tile, and marble). Thepotential for slips, trips, and falls is something that we should all be aware of. Inbusy, crowded, environments many potential hazards can be missed.Potential Hazards (I imagine all of you could add to this list)□ Stairs Without Handrails□ Books Stacked on the Floor□ Boxes & Carts Left In Walkways (Cluttered or Narrow Walkways)□ Damaged Floor Tiles□ Employees Carrying Heavy Loads to Avoid Extra Trips□ Poor Lighting Along Walkways and Work Areas□ Damaged or Wet Carpet□ Extension Cords Across Walkways□ Slippery Sidewalks / Parking Areas□ Spills□ Uneven Walking Surfaces□ Wet Stairs (From Leaks and Weather)□ Wobbly Step Stools / LaddersCreated by Shawn Holle Page 1 of 2
