Slips, Trips and Falls
Slips, trips and falls accidents account for the largest number of major injuries and reportable lost time in the workplace. No employer is immune from the risk as a slips, trips or falls accident can occur in all types of workplace including offices, construction sites, kitchens or production areas. The Slips,Trips and Falls course helps raise employee awareness of the common causes of these types of accidents and the positive actions they can take to prevent them occurring to themselves and others. The course follows HSE’s general guidance on the subject and ‘Preventing slips and trips at work’ (INDG225) with particular emphasis on the
recommended ‘See it, Sort it’ approach to employee ownership and responsibility.

How is it Delivered?
Slips, Trips and Falls is delivered online through a computer network to each trainee at their desktop or laptop at home or work. We can also provide the course to be integrated into a SCORM compliant LMS. The training can be completed at the employees own pace by ‘book marking’ and recording progress and returning to the training at a later stage. In delivering the training in this way the normal costs of training are reduced whilst still achieving the desired awareness and compliance.
Compliance Record Keeping Easily Solved
An invaluable feature of Praxis42 eLearning courses is our learning management system called the eSP, our eSolutions Platform. This solves the problem of compliance record keeping by recording all training and completion of courses and making these records available for you to view and manage electronically. No more struggling to find training records should you have a visit from the enforcing agency or an audit. Training certificates can be printed by the trainee once the course is completed and the end assessment successfully passed.
