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.
MARCOM’s “Walking and Working Surfaces” training 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.
All of the products… the new “Micro-Learning” and full-length online courses as well as the DVDs and interactive CD courses… discuss topics that are integral to employees’ understanding of these issues.
Topics covered in these products include:
- The fundamentals of safe surfaces.
- Walkways and floors.
- Stairs and fixed ladders.
- Portable ladders.
- and more.
“Walking and Working Surfaces” online and VOD training, DVD and CD courses are available in English and Spanish. Kits, Booklets and Posters are available in English only.
