Fall Protection Your Workers Can Relate To

You may have heard the phrase “small falls are a big deal”. Small falls or falls from a low height or same level account for a large part of work-related injuries. According to CCOHS, approximately 66% of falls happen on the same level. The problem is we all think we are safe when we are only a few feet off the ground. And stairs are another area where we tend to become complacent about the hazards. When was the last time you used the hand rail on a stairway? Or had a close call on a stairway because you were rushing or not paying attention? Our newest DVD title takes a look at stairways and ladders and discusses proper ladder setup, inspection and maintenance. It also discusses unsafe conditions and unsafe acts for stairways.
