Surefooted Safety: Training Strategies for Preventing Slips, Trips and Falls
Robert Pater - Managing Director, SSA/MoveSMART®
Slips, trips and falls are prevalent and costly injuries - despite companies implementing numerous engineering and footwear controls. Experience worldwide with numerous companies has shown that one significant key to prevention - with aging workforces, employees transitioning to tasks, outside staff and more - is to raise workers' control of their own skills for preventing slips, trips and falls. This webinar focuses on proven strategies for designing training to prevent slips, trips and falls.
Same Level Slips, Trips and Falls - An Insurance Perspective
James D. Smith - Managing Director, Southeast Region Risk Control Services, Arthur J. Gallagher Risk Management Services
In various industries, slips, trips and falls on the same level are one of the leading causes of liability claims and worker injuries. These types of injuries require site exposure assessments, creating effective risk treatments to offer better means to control or minimize these exposures. When claims are reported, insurance or third party administrators might use various claims management practices to handle liability. Whether you have an insurance program that is a high dollar self insured retention program or one with a standard deductible, this presentation will address various aspects of a slip, trip and fall program that can help you reduce exposures and associated costs of claims.

Floor Cleaning and Maintenance: The Key To Slips and Falls Prevention
Wayne S. Maynard - Technical Director-Ergonomics & Tribology, Liberty Mutual Group
Key to prevention of slips and falls is selection of slip resistant flooring and keeping those floors clean and dry as possible. This session will provide an overview of a slip and fall prevention continuum with an emphasis on housekeeping, floor cleaning methods and maintenance practices. This session will address types of floor cleaners including features and benefits, selection guidelines for cleaning chemicals, importance of formal floor cleaning protocols and a discussion of floor treatments including waxes, polishes and slip resistant treatments.
Management Controls: Operating and Maintaining Facilities to Minimize Slips, Trips and Falls
Steven Di Pilla - Directory, Research and Development, ESIS, Inc. - Global Risk Control Services
Managing and maintaining facilities is as important as proper design. This session addresses the less tangible features of slip and fall prevention and mitigation, such as inspection and maintenance, lighting, de-icing/snow removal, construction/special event control, and contractual arrangements. A successful and efficient effort to managing slip and fall risk requires an integrated approach. The session emphasizes that rather than having a separate slip/fall initiative to cover managing and maintaining a fall-free facility, controls are best integrated with established programs or departments.
