MARCOM's Walking and Working Surfaces DVD Program identifies the hazards that are associated with different surfaces, and provides the practical information and specific procedures employees need to help prevent slips, trips and falls on the job.
We depend on the surfaces that we walk and work on for a lot of things…to provide the support we need to position ourselves properly, to help us use our muscles efficiently, to keep our balance and do our work safely. But we often take their condition for granted, and that is a big mistake. Year after year slips, trips and falls make up the majority of on-the-job accidents. They cause almost 20% of disabling occupational injuries, and thousands of fatalities annually. Yet most of these accidents could have been prevented.
The DVD program and booklet include:
- the fundamentals of safe surfaces,
- walking and working on walkways and floors,
- stairs and fixed ladders,
- portable ladders,
- scaffolding and more.
The DVD program in the kit comes with a comprehensive leader's guide, reproducible scheduling & attendance form, employee quiz, training certificate and training log.
