Summer Announcement - Slip, Trip, and Fall Prevention

Slip, trip and fall hazards can result in serious workplace incidents. Many of these incidents can be prevented by being aware of surrounding areas, the path of travel, as well as by focusing on the task at hand. Other incidents can result when potential hazards are not addressed when identified (e.g. water is spilled from a cup but no orange cones are used to alert others of the spill), or when required safety practices are not followed.

You can view the LTRI Intranet Safety pages under SOPs to view the institutes policy; or view the Mount Sinai Hospital Slips, Trips, Falls Prevention Program and related information to learn how to address these hazards and prevent incidents.
