Slips, Trips and Falls - Off The Shelf Elearning Courses

Slips, trips and falls are the most common cause of injuries at work, according to accident statistics in the UK. The Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) requires employers to ensure the health and safety of all employees. Slips, trips and falls training helps employees take steps to control and mitigate slips, trips and falls risks.

Business owners need to increase awareness among their staff of possible workplace accidents due to slips, trips, and falls. A falling accident can have a major disruption on a business in terms of lost working days and possible financial loss. To prevent falls at work, employees greatly benefit from training that helps them identify hazards, establish responsibilities and instill good practices into the company culture.

At Sponge, we have developed the Slips, Trips and Falls elearning Course which will enable the user to identify hazards and apply basic principles to minimise or eliminate the risks of slips, trips, and falls. The course is suitable for any employee in the workplace.
