Slips and falls in the workplace are a common cause of injury and death. Tragically, most of these injuries and fatalities are preventable. As an employer looking to reduce the chances of slip, trip, or fall accidents in your workplace, one of the most effective steps you can take is to enroll your employees in one of National Safety Training’s online OSHA courses. To find out more about what your employees will learn from our OSHA courses, read on.
In addition to decreasing the likelihood of a slip and fall accident occurring in your workplace, enrolling a set of employees in a group OSHA training course will equip your workers with a standard vocabulary set that can improve communication with the effect of improving efficiency and minimizing workplace dangers.
Guard Rail Requirements
OSHA’s Fall Protection standard, meant to protect workers from injuries caused by falling from scaffolding and elevated platforms, mandates that the top edge of a guard rail be between 39 and 45 inches above the surface on which workers walk. It also stipulates that guard rails be able to withstand 200 pounds of pressure. OSHA training courses provide recommendations for meeting these requirements.
Holes in the walls and floors of a workspace can pose a hazard to workers who are unaware of their existence. Your workers can learn about these hazards, how to identify them, and how to reduce the risk of injuries associated with them in a National Safety Training OSHA standard course.
Proper Ladder Usage Methods
From construction sites to backrooms in retail stores, workers in a variety of industries should know how to properly use a ladder. If more employees completed OSHA training courses, the nearly 200,000 ladder-related injuries that are treated in U.S. emergency rooms each year could be reduced.
