Construction Slips, Trips & Falls

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1926

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

Slips, trips, and falls training is critical to minimize the effects of these hazards. This online course presents an overview of the risks associated with construction walking-working surfaces. It covers industry safety standards, applicable regulations, responsibilities in the workplace, and hazard control measures to prevent slips, trips, and falls.

The construction industry is an inherently hazardous environment, and many workers are injured annually due to walking and working surfaces accidents. Construction work often involves working around unprotected edges and unguarded openings, which are dangerous in the event of a slip, trip, or fall.

This course is for:
This construction slips, trips, and falls training is designed for all members of the construction workforce, including contractors, subcontractors, employees, managers, and supervisors. This safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives.

This online certification course meets the requirements set forth by OSHA for walking-working surfaces in the construction industry, including slip, trip, and fall hazards.

Case Study: A construction superintendent fell 33 feet to his death while constructing an elevator shaft. He was setting up a work platform using plywood set on top of some boards that were nailed to the frame of the elevator shaft. When the victim stepped onto the plywood platform, one of the boards broke. This caused the platform to give, and the victim fell to the concrete floor below.

Key Takeaway: The worker should have been provided with appropriate fall protection equipment. In addition, before work began, the working surface should have been inspected to make sure that it had sufficient structural strength to support the worker, and the elevator shaft hole should have been sufficiently covered.

Governing Regulations

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, is charged with the enforcement of safety and health conditions of workers through the use of regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. OSHA regulations are published in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 1926 is designated for construction industry standards. OSHA walking-working surfaces regulations are detailed in 1926 Subpart C - General Safety and Health Provisions; 1926 Subpart L - Scaffolds; 1926 Subpart M - Fall Protection; and 1926 Subpart X - Stairways and Ladders.

Construction Slips, Trips & Falls

I like how they use past experiences on jobs to explain why they have a rule. It shows you in real life situations what can happen if you do not follow the the safety guidelines. Not only can it prevent you from getting a few days pay but it can easily cost you your life. that should always be priority.
