In addition to vertical falls, the fall prevention effort must account for so called “horizontal falls” risks, aka, slips, trips and falls. This can be done in a dedicated, standalone policy and/or as part of a broader policy covering housekeeping and general workplace sanitation.
HOW TO USE THIS TOOL
This Model Policy is based on an actual example used successfully by the University of Toronto. The Policy is fairly generic and can be adapted for any type of workplace within any jurisdiction.
