- Part 3
January 28, 2021
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Topic Slip, Trip, and Fall Training (.3 CEUs)
The training will provide a systematic review of slip/trip/fall from same level exposures and methods for successful reduction and control of incidents related to these exposures. The program is based off the approach of identification, evaluation and control (engineering; administrative and work practice controls; and personal protective equipment) of causal factors. Each step is broken down into individual activities to support the organizational effort directed at reducing the causal factors. Activities and efforts are supported by examples successfully incorporated by other organizations and safety professionals in the past.
The event will consist of reading materials and three 1-hour webinars. This event will offer members .3 CEUs toward their professional certifications.
Part 1: Introduction and Identify Exposures (1 hour) – Explanation of the exposures and the challenges associated with slips/trips/falls on same level. Detailed examples of organizational/operational exposures will be provided with opportunities for group discussion to allow attendees to perform a basic assessment of their own situation.
Part 2: Evaluate and Implement Controls (1 hour) – This segment will provide a review of methods attendees can incorporate to determine the frequency and severity of the exposures identified in Part 1 allowing them to prioritize and implement the selected control methods using a multi-disciplinary team and an established systematic approach starting with engineering controls to eliminate the hazards and administrative/work practice controls to mitigate, if not eliminate, the exposures.
Part 3: Other Controls, Monitoring Results and Re-evaluate Exposures (1 hour) – This segment presents other control methods on the lower end of the administrative controls such as training and personal protective equipment. The session will expand on training requirements starting at the basics of personal accountability, understanding the mechanics of walking and pros and cons of various footwear options. The segment ends with addressing methods to review the established/implemented controls to ensure they are effective, as well as efficient.
Members must attend all three portions of the event in order to obtain the CEUs for this educational event.
