Slips,Trips and Falls

What’s underfoot?

What’s underfoot on floors, stairs, sidewalks, playgrounds and parking lots can cause serious injuries like broken bones and concussion. Report these slippery, uneven or broken surfaces to your principal as slip, trip and fall hazards. It’s your principal’s job to ensure that these surfaces are in good condition – both inside and outside the building. Your principal is also responsible for providing staff with ladder safety training and access to approved ladders or step stools. Has this happened at your school? It’s the  principal’s job to investigate and deal with your report. Tell your steward and your school’s health and safety representative about your concerns. Get in touch with your ETFO local for more support. Step into safety!
