Safety Topic:  Avoiding Slips, Trips, and Falls

Not all falls happen at a height – take these simple steps towards protecting yourself at work:

  • Wear proper shoes – make sure they fit properly and provide enough traction, especially in wet or icy conditions.  
  • Clean up the work space – keep pathways clear, and pick up boxes, cords, and other hazards off the floor.
  • Post signage alerting others of temporary slip, trip, or fall hazards that need to be cleaned up.
  • Inspect ladders, stairs, or equipment before using – make sure it is in a safe condition.
