Walking And Working Surfaces In Construction Environments
This safety training video identifies the hazards of different surfaces and provides the practical information and specific procedures employees need to help prevent slips, trips and falls in and around all types of construction sites. It's easy to take the surfaces we walk and work on for granted, but that would be a big mistake. We depend on these surfaces to provide the support we need to position ourselves properly, use our muscles efficiently, keep our balance and do our work safely. Yet slips, trips and falls continue to make up the majority of on-the-job accidents. They cause almost 2% of disabling occupational injuries, and thousands of fatalities every year. And most of these accidents could have been prevented. Areas that are covered included the fundamentals of safe surfaces, walkways and floors, stairs and fixed ladders, scaffolding and more.
