    1. SLIP/TRIP/FALL PREVENTION Presented by: Bill Luther, Loss Prevention Consultant

    2. Do You -REALLY- Understand Fall Prevention ?

    3. Which way do you go to address it?

    4. Do you mean what you say and say what you mean ?

    5. Are you getting mixed signals or giving mixed signals?

    6. U-Turns Only?

    7. Are you taking the rules to heart?

    8. Two One-Ways Equals One Two-Way, Right?

    9. For the Directionally Challenged

    10. When does School Start ? Do we need training?

    11. Uhhh, O.K.

    12. You Can’t Be Too Safe

    13. Are you enforcing the rules/regulations?

    14. With all the information out there…. Why do we still have Slip-Trip-Fall accidents ?

    15. Agenda • 1:00 – 1:10 Introduction & Objectives • 1:10 – 2:00 Definitions, statistics, standards • 2:00 – 2:10 Break • 2:10 – 3:10 Categories & Factors of Falls • 3:10 – 3:20 Break • 3:20 – 4:30 Prevention of Falls • 4:30 – 4:45 Q & A

    16. Objectives of this course • This course will focus on general industry slips/trips/falls. • The Construction industry has its own unique fall concerns and standards • 1926.500 - .503 • 1926.1050 - .1060 ladders & stairs • 1926.451 scaffolds

    17. Objectives of this course • Factors that contribute to why we fall • Physiological factors • Social/emotional factors • Environmental factors

    18. Objectives of this course • Types of falls • Same level • Fall from heights (non-construction related and focuses on portable ladders) • Stairs and steps

    19. Objectives of this course • What can be done to help prevent falls • Floor maintenance procedures • Housekeeping • Proper footwear • Hazard identification • Awareness training

    20. Let’s get Started!!!

    21. Definitions • Friction: resistance to lateral movement caused by contact between two surfaces • Coefficient of friction: the division of horizontal force by vertical force

    22. Definitions • Coefficient of friction (COF): Common performance measurement. Static measure of 0.5 has become working definition under many state laws and codes. Certain circumstances such as ramps and wet flooring requires a higher COF.

    23. Definitions • Slip resistant: A floor finish that meets a static coefficient of friction value of 0.50 or greater as measured by the D-2047 standard (James Machine) • ANSI: American National Standard Institute • ASTM: American Society for Testing and Materials

    24. Slip/Trip/Fall Impact • Almost 20,000 workplace related falls reported in Texas in 1998 1 Texas Workers’ Compensation Commission

    25. Slip/Trip/Fall Impact 1 Texas Workers’ Compensation Commission

    26. Slip/Trip/Fall Impact 1 Texas Workers’ Compensation Commission

    27. Slip/Trip/Fall Impact 1 Texas Workers’ Compensation Commission

    28. Key Standards for Working and WalkingSurfaces • Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 1910.22 – 1910.30 for General Industry • American National Standard (ANSI) A1264-2-2001 joint issue with American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE)

    29. Key Standards for Working and WalkingSurfaces • ASTM Evaluation of Test Data obtained for Measurement of Slip Resistance of Footwear sole F695 Standard Practice for, heel or related materials

    30. OSHA 1910.22 General Requirements • General requirements are broad • Housekeeping - (neat, sanitary and if possible, dry • Aisles – clear passage and appropriately marked • Covers/guardrails – protect from open pits, tanks, etc.

    31. OSHA 1910.23 Floor and Wall Openings • Floor and wall openings • Floor openings - must have rails or cover plate • Wall openings – must be guarded if there is a drop of more than 4 feet

    32. 1910.23 (Floor/Wall Openings) • Stairway railings/guards – handrails for 4 or more risers • Stair width and presence/absence of walls notes where rails are to be placed • Steps should be designed as or treated with slip resistant surface

    33. 1910.24 Fixed Industrial Stairs • Applies to stairs around machinery, tanks, etc., and stairs leading to/from floors, platforms and pits • Different width requirements than fire exits (min only 22”) • More defined tread requirements

    34. 1910.25 Portable Wood Ladders • Must be in good condition and made of high density wood • Three types: • I-industrial, 3-20’ heavy use • II-commercial, 3-12’ medium use • III-household, 3-6’ light use • Special purpose ladders-painter’s stepladder and mason’s ladder

    35. 1910.26 Portable Metal Ladders • Rungs must be made slip resistant (corrugated, knurled, dimpled or coated with skid-resistant material) • Provision for immediate inspection if ladder tips over • Proper use provision- every 4’ height, place ladder 1’ away from wall base

    36. ANSI/ASSE A1264.2-2001 • Standard for the Provision of Slip Resistance on Walking/ Working Surfaces • Focuses on slip resistance of flooring surfaces • Recognizes slip resistance testing methods • guideline of 0.5 coefficient of friction for dry conditions

    37. BREAK TIME

    38. Types of falls • Same level • Smooth, finished surfaces – tile, marble, linoleum, etc • Uneven surfaces – typically outdoor environments, sidewalks & parking lots

    39. Types of falls • Fall from heights • Ladders-portables • Step stools • Platforms
