Winter Slips, Trips and Falls - Government of Alberta Resources
November 26, 2020
Starting in 2019, the Alberta government introduced a prevention initiative that outlines priorities for the OHS system. The purpose of the Prevention Initiative is to gain cooperation and synergy from all OHS system players through system alignment and coordinated actions.
The Alberta OHS prevention initiative has developed targeted resources to raise awareness of winter slips, trips and falls. Winter-related slips, trips and falls have a significant impact on Alberta workplaces and workers each year. Encouraging employers, supervisors and workers to be extra vigilant could be the key to reducing these incidents.
The winter slip, trip and fall resources are available on the OHS Resource Portal and come in two formats:
- Bulletins – with a summary of slip, trip or fall hazards and suggested controls.
- MicroLearnings – Short, single-focused one-page documents to provide quick hits of information. Copy and paste, or print and post, for sharing at meetings, in emails or to enhance your organization’s safety communications.
