Slips, Trips & Falls – The Fatal Half Inch – Safety Training Video – Trip & Fall Prevention
Preventing slips, trips and falls starts with understanding what causes them, and this video explains the most common, and most surprising, cause of trips and falls, something that almost everyone has in common, but fail to realize.
We call it The Fatal Half Inch.
Slips, trips and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents and result in back injuries, strains and sprains, contusions, and fractures.
Trips & Falls are the second leading cause of death in the home, especially in those over age 55.
In the workplace, slips, trips and falls account for the majority of accidents and injuries, and falls account for 15 percent of all accidental deaths and are second only to motor vehicle crashes as a cause of fatalities.
We developed this safety training video to make people aware of the hazard that causes most trips and falls, one that we carry with us and use all the time, but fail to completely understand.
Remember, 99% of accidents are the result of human behaviors. But trips and falls are preventable – it starts with education about a simple aspect of our own physical movement.
Send the link to this short video to employees, students, family members and business owners to educate them on the most common and primary cause of all trips and falls.
Help reduce the number of accidents and injuries in your workplace, and in your family.
The life you save could be a loved one’s, or even your own.
