Slip, Trip & Fall Prevention

Slip, Trip and Fall Prevention Package
Preventing Slips Trips and Falls Infographic

Although the snow and ice seem to be here to stay for the remainder of the winter season, slip, trip and fall prevention is something that we need to consider all year round – both inside and outside of our workplaces!

Slips, trips and falls are among the leading causes of injures resulting in workers missing time at work in Saskatchewan’s service and hospitality sectors (S21, S22 & S23 WCB rate codes). From 2016 to the third quarter of 2018, falls have accounted for 17% of claims and 28% of claim costs.

Consider the following slip, trip and fall hazards in your workplace:

  • Slippery surfaces (waxed floors, polished tile or stone, oily or greasy surfaces)

  • Seasonal slip, trip and fall hazards (ice, snow, leaves, mud)

  • Spills of wet or dry substances

  • Changes in walkway levels and slopes

  • Unsecured mats or loose carpets

  • Uneven stairs, walkways or doorways

  • Smooth, cold surfaces such as metal stairs

  • Unsafe use of ladders

  • Poor lighting

  • Debris or cables in walkways or on stairs

  • Open cabinet drawers

  • Unsuitable footwear for the task or surface

  • Poorly maintained equipment or walking surfaces

  • Unexpected or unseen steps, platforms or thresholds

 

What can you do to reduce the risk of slips, trips and falls?

  • Slow down and pay attention to where you are going!

  • Use handrails when going up and down stairs.

  • Select and wear proper-fitting footwear that is appropriate for the task you are doing.

    • Change shoes at work if needed.

    • Keep footwear in good condition.

  • Always pay attention to the work you are doing and be aware of your work setting.

  • Check your worksite for potential hazards, even when completing regular everyday activities.

  • Have and maintain good lighting. Do outdoor work during the day. Use a flashlight when entering dark areas.

  • Regularly inspect work areas.

  • Practice good housekeeping:

    • Clean all spills immediately.

    • Keep walkways clear of clutter and obstacles.

    • Secure or cover cords or cables.

    • Mark or identify spills and wet areas.

  • Use appropriate, non-slip flooring material.

  • Always close filing cabinets or storage drawers.

  • Do not let objects that you are carrying or pushing block your view.

  • Keep one hand free to balance or break a fall.

  • Take shorter strides and have feet pointing slightly outwards to improve balance. This is called the penguin shuffle during winter months!

  • Clear snow and ice accumulations at your worksite such as in parking lots and on sidewalks and entryways.

  • Paint smooth floors with sand set in the mixture to increase traction.

  • Always use a ladder, step ladder or step stool to reach high shelves (never stand on a chair or box).

  • Ensure that your ladders, platforms or other equipment are in safe working condition.

  • Use guardrails and/or warning devices for open sides, edges and openings.

  • Maintain three-points of contact when getting in and out of vehicles, equipment or climbing ladders.

  • Take breaks to stay alert.

  • When working at heights, use the appropriate travel restraint or fall protection system for the work that you are doing.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and much more!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!

    I mastered more something totally new on this losing weight issue. One issue is that good nutrition is vital any time dieting. A tremendous reduction in fast foods, sugary ingredients, fried foods, sweet foods, red meat, and whitened flour products might be necessary. Retaining wastes parasitic organisms, and toxic compounds may prevent ambitions for fat loss. While specified drugs for the short term solve the matter, the terrible side effects usually are not worth it, and so they never present more than a short-lived solution. This is a known indisputable fact that 95 of fad diets fail. Many thanks sharing your notions on this web site.

    With everything which appears to be building throughout this particular area, your perspectives are generally quite refreshing. Having said that, I beg your pardon, but I do not give credence to your whole idea, all be it stimulating none the less. It seems to everyone that your remarks are actually not completely justified and in simple fact you are yourself not thoroughly convinced of the point. In any case I did take pleasure in reading it.

    I have discovered some new things from your site about pc’s. Another thing I’ve always imagined is that computers have become an item that each family must have for several reasons. They supply you with convenient ways in which to organize households, pay bills, go shopping, study, tune in to music and perhaps watch television shows. An innovative way to complete all of these tasks is a mobile computer. These pc’s are mobile, small, potent and lightweight.
