#SL011 - VHS (16 min. 1991)
Slips, trips and falls are a leading cause of injury and death on the job. Every year, more than 200,000 employees are seriously hurt—some are even killed—in falls. And office workers account for more than twice as many slips and falls as non-office workers. Concise narration and dramatic vignettes teach employees and their supervisors how to eliminate the causes of falls, and to cooperate in correcting or reporting potential hazards. With awareness and a sense of responsibility, employees can learn to prevent dangerous slips, trips and falls.
- Small Falls are a Big Deal
#SM002 - VHS & #SM003 - DVD (21 min. 2006)
In this video, Martin Lesperance recalls stories of fall injuries he has attended as a firefighter and EMT to make the point that small falls can be a big deal. Some of the worst fall injuries don't always involve someone plummeting from a high place such as a 100-foot chemical tank; they result from simple incidents like a trip over an unsecured rug or a slip on a slippery substance. While these types of falls rarely make the evening news, they can result in broken bones, skull fractures and other disabling conditions. Martin also stresses that we can prevent most fall injuries by recognizing and controlling all fall hazards we encounter. Topics include the importance of wearing proper footwear, recognizing and controlling slip and trip hazards, transitional areas and changing walking surface conditions, correcting fall hazards, situational awareness and moving from one level to another.
