Program Overview:

Slips, trips, and falls can occur at home, at school, during recreational activities or in the workplace - basically anywhere inside or outside. Slips and trips result from unintended or an unexpected change in the contact between the feet and the ground or walking surface.

A fall can occur during walking or climbing a ladder to change a light fixture, or as a result of a complex series of events.

This training course looks at the causes of such incidents and how they can be prevented.
