MARCOM's interactive course on Walking and Working Surfaces in Construction Environments training identifies the hazards of different surfaces and provides the practical information and specific procedures employees need to help prevent slips, trips and falls on the job. 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 20% 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.
Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood... and retained.
