THINK SAFE – WORK SAFE
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.
