Slips, Trips and Falls Awareness

Course type

E-learning accredited by The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH).

Course description

Injuries resulting from slips or trips are responsible for around 50 percent of all reported major injuries, and almost 33 percent of injuries that caused the employee to take 7 or more days off work. This means that nearly 1 million working days are lost every year due to slips, trips or falls accidents which costs society and industry as whole and estimated £800 million per every year.

This e-learning module aims to alert all staff to the dangers of slip and trip accidents and to raise their awareness to the dangers of the everyday hazards. If your workers can begin to understand and recognise hazards, your business will become far more productive and more importantly, safer.
