Staying Safe on Ladders and Stairs: How to Avoid Injury Costs and Fall Protection Violations in General Industry - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Use this on-demand webinar for guidance and best practices on how to assess, develop, and implement an effective ladder and stairway safety program.

Slips, trips, and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents, making them only second to motor vehicle accidents as a cause of fatality. In November 2016, OSHA issued its new Final Rule on Walking Working Surfaces and Fall Protection in General Industry to address these hazards, and presents many new challenges for employers. The new standards—more than 20 years in the making–cover hazards related to floors, ladders, stairways, ramps, scaffolds, elevated walkways and platforms, falls, and falling objects. It also adds new requirements on the design, performance, and use of personal fall protection systems.

These and other measures the final rule incorporates reflect the advances in technology and industry best practices that have been developed. Taking the time to review and upgrade your slip, trip, and fall prevention programs will require involvement from most of the departments in your organization; however, in the end it will be well worth the effort. So, what’s the best way to proceed in doing so?

Use this on-demand webinar for a discussion with Kevin Slates, Clinical Associate Professor from Indiana University. Kevin will provide a clear understanding of how to identify and assess slip, trip and fall hazards, and will give sought-after guidance on developing effective programs for mitigating associated exposures and injuries.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Assess the status and requirements of the Walking Working Surface Rule, ladder requirements, and other related regulations
  • Develop a systematic process for analyzing walking working surface/fall risks and how to ensure your training programs are complete and compliant
  • Address and develop contingency plans for foreseeable incidents
  • Implement a comprehensive process for investigating incidents that will yield useful and practical corrective actions
  • Consider proven strategies for reporting, tracking, and completing identified corrective actions
