Course Overview


According to the National Safety Council, in 2020, 805 workers died in falls, and 211,640 were injured badly enough to require days off work. A worker doesn’t have to fall from a high level to suffer fatal injuries; 136 workers were killed in falls on the same level in 2020, according to Injury Facts. In fact, construction workers are most at risk for fatal falls from height, more than seven times the rate of other industries. This course provides practical information on the hazards of slips, trips, and falls with a particular emphasis on these types of injuries in construction environments. It covers the center of gravity and the importance of maintaining balance, walking surfaces, housekeeping and maintenance, footwear, and best practices for falling properly. Slips, trips, and falls are no laughing matter, so utilize this course among all your employees to ensure a consistent understanding of safe and appropriate work practices.
