From the office to the warehouse, if we’re at work, we could all use this training. Most slips, trips and falls can be easily avoided, with care. This course explains how, and the consequences of not doing so. As an individual or a representative of a company, it’s beneficial to take this training to avoid costly and painful injuries.
Cartoons would have you believe that a slip or trip, with a comical sound effect, of course, is really funny. But actually they can be extremely serious. This course helps explain the consequences of slip and trip injuries, as well as identifying the common causes of them. On top of that, we define good and bad practices, and help you understand the regulatory requirements that keep you safe.
We all like to watch those TV shows of people having mild slipping accidents, right. You know the ones: people are given a set amount of cash and the show uses the clip of someone falling over for the next 30 years. From brides slipping over on a dancefloor, to a toddler tripping over a yapping dog, they’re all great, aren’t they?
It’s not so funny when the person slipping and injuring themselves is you, though. Slips, trips, and falls are the leading cause of major injuries in the workplace. Imagine the potential weeks of agony, time off work, possibly unpaid. Maybe even life-changing injuries, too. Or being responsible for those injuries happening to your colleagues? It’s time we started taking slips, trips, and falls more seriously. You can start by taking this course.
We see it all the time on TV. Someone skidding on a banana skin before a big crash. In reality, it’s not quite like that. It’s generally more of a ‘whoops’ before falling into a crumpled heap with a sprained ankle and a feeling of complete and utter embarrassment. But we kept this one cartoony, because it’s more visually engaging.
This course has a lot of useful information. So, we’ve used fun animation and relatable scenes, like offices, to deliver the content. There are interactive sections to test learners as they work their way through, as well as parts that can be clicked through so everyone can learn at their own pace.
The course is approved by IOSH, so you KNOW it’s great, and that means learners have access to a rotating quiz bank, so they will have to understand the answers to questions, rather than guessing by trial and error.
Everyone has the right to learn and learner need can vary demanding on environment or disabilities. This course comes with transcripts so people have text options for an media, subtitles for all videos and is screen reader friendly with alternative text.
We take a number of steps to ensure visuals and navigation is easy for your people. For more information on the steps we take for accessibility check out how we make out courses.
