Objectives

Objectives

After completing this module, you

will be able to:

  • Identify the impact of slips, trips and falls on the workplace.

  • Recognize key slip, trip and fall terminology.

  • Recognize OSHA regulations and other standards relating to slips, trips and falls.

  • Identify the various types of slips, trips and falls.

  • State the three components of effective trip, slip and fall prevention.

1-2


Test your slip trip and fall iq

Test Your Slip, Trip and Fall IQ

Take the quiz to determine your knowledge of slip, trip and fall facts.

1-3


Did you know

Did You Know

274,310 occupational injuries were caused by slips, trips and falls in 2004.

1-4


Did you know1

Did You Know

793 occupational deaths were caused by falls in 2004.

1-5


Welcome to

Did You Know

In the year 2004, a median of . . .

  • 14 work days were lost due to falls to a lower level.

  • 9 work days were lost due to falls on the same level.

  • 7 work days were lost due to slips and trips.

1-6


Welcome to

Did You Know

In the years 2002-2003 . . .

The average workers’ compensation cost for a slip/trip/fall was $20,228.

1-7


Welcome to

Did You Know

In the years 2002-2003 . . .

The average incurred workers’ compensation cost per trip/slip/fall exceeded the average cost of other injuries by 14%.

1-8


Definitions

Slip

Trip

Definitions

Loss of balance when there is too little friction between the foot and the floor

Loss of balance when the foot collides with, strikes or hits an object in its path

1-9


Definitions1

Fall

Definitions

To move downward, typically rapidly and freely, from a higher to a lower level

1-10


Definitions2

Friction

Definitions

The resistance that one surface or object encounters when moving over another

The resistance between the shoe and the walking surface

1-11


Definitions3

Tribology

Tribometer

Definitions

The study of friction

An instrument for measuring friction in sliding

1-12


Definitions4

Foot Candle

Definitions

The amount of light or brightness that a birthday cake candle generates from a distance of one foot

1-13


Definitions5

Lumen

Definitions

A measurement that is equal to one foot candle falling on one square foot of area

1-14


Definitions6

Definitions

The relative force that resists the tendency of a shoe or foot to slide along a floor

Slip Resistance

High Traction

Amount of walkway slip resistance often associated with preventing a slip, trip or fall

1-15


Definitions7

Definitions

Coefficient of Friction

A measurement that indicates how slippery a floor is under dry conditions

1-16


Examples of cof

Examples of COF

If it takes 6 pounds of force to move a 10 pound object, then:

6 (horizontal force)

10 (vertical force)

the coefficient of friction (COF) is 0.6. This is considered by floor experts to be a safe rating.

1-17


Examples of cof1

Examples of COF

If it takes 2 pounds of force to move a 10 pound object, then:

2 (horizontal force)

10 (vertical force)

the COF is 0.2. This is considered by floor experts to be an unsafe, slippery rating.

1-18


Examples of cof2

Examples of COF

If it takes 15 pounds of force to move a 10 pound object, then:

15 (horizontal force)

10 (vertical force)

the COF is 1.5. As this illustrates, it is possible to have a COF of over 1.0, but it is rare and considered to be a trip hazard.

1-19


Welcome to

Two Types of COF

  • Static Coefficient of Friction—theforce required to initiate relative motion between an object and a surface it is resting on

  • Dynamic Coefficient of Friction—theforce required to keep a sliding object in motion once sliding has begun

1-20


Welcome to

Regulations and Standards

  • OSHA Regulatory Requirements

  • Voluntary Consensus Standards

    • NFSI

    • ANSI

    • ASTM

    • NFPA

  • Individual State Building Codes

1-21


Welcome to

Applying the Standards

  • Become familiar with the standards, especially OSHA sub-part D.

  • Set a goal to learn the standards one at a time.

  • Target areas that you want to improve, then learn the related standard.

  • Use the Internet to do more research.

  • Rely on your contractors, vendors and insurance company for assistance.

1-22


Welcome to

Activity Directions

  • Identify two types of slips, trips or falls from Page 9.

  • Identify one or two related actions you can take to improve in that area.
