Twenty percent of the 30,000 forklift accidents that occur each year involve a pedestrian being struck by the vehicle. Working in an environment that features environmental changes, poor illumination, congestion of equipment and people, and distractions means that slips, trips, and falls are a constant source of danger for pedestrians in the workplace. In this Whitepaper Walking-Working Surfaces and Pedestrian Safety, Scott Gaddis, Vice President and Global Practice Leader—Safety and Health at Intelex Technologies Inc. provides a comprehensive look at preventing falls on walking-working surfaces by;
- Identifying risks to the worker associated with work activity.
- Identifying hazards found in the work environment that pose a threat of loss.
- Providing details of identified risks or hazards and providing context to build understanding.
- Utilizing a measurement system to evaluate risk understanding and decide precautions.
- Building controls that protect people and the work environment.
Once you’ve downloaded the Whitepaper, you’ll receive a link to download Scott’s Walking-Working Surface Inspection Checklist. The checklist will help you take the insights you’ve learned and use them to identify the strengths and weaknesses in your walking-working surface inspections.
