Walking Working Surfaces & Personal Fall Protection Systems

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1910 Subpart D

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

This slips, trips, and falls online training course highlights the dangers associated with slips, trips, and falls on walking-working surfaces, as well as how to avoid or minimize such hazards. Course topics include hazard identification and evaluation, safe work practices, and employer/employee responsibilities for workplace safety.

Slips, trips, and falls are a major safety concern in almost every industry. They make up the majority of general industry accidents, accounting for 15 percent of all accidental deaths. Many of these incidents can be prevented by following OSHA walking-working surfaces regulations and maintaining a safe work environment.

This course is for:
This slip, trip, and fall training is designed for anyone who works within the general industry sector at a permanent place of employment, such as manufacturing, property management, and warehousing and distribution operations. This safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives.

This online certification course meets the requirements set forth by OSHA for walking-working surfaces regulations.

Case Study: A 33-year-old male hotel custodian died from injuries sustained after falling down a flight of stairs. The man was an experienced custodian and had been working for the hotel for 10 years. On the night of the incident, he was asked to deliver a roll-away bed to a guest staying on the second floor. He retrieved the bed from a first-floor storage room and carried the bed up the stairs. At some point during his ascent, he lost his balance and fell down the stairway. He was found lying on his back at the bottom of the stairway; the roll-away bed had landed on his chest. He was transported to a hospital shortly after the incident, where he was pronounced dead.

Key Takeaway: You should always use handrails when taking the stairs and take care not to ascend or descend carrying a load that can obstruct your view or put you off balance. More than one employee should have been involved in moving a large, bulky object like a roll-away bed.
