Revised employer resource on preventing slips, trips, and falls in manufacturing
Slips, trips, and falls put workers at risk of sprains, strains, bruises, concussions, and fractures. While falls are extremely common, they are one of the most preventable types of workplace injury.
Slips, trips, and falls in manufacturing is a revised bulletin that is primarily for employers in manufacturing, but is relevant for any industry. This bulletin helps employers better understand how slips and trips happen, and how to identify hazards and assess the risks. It also provides information on how to use the hierarchy of controls to manage the risks.
