Slips, Trips, and Falls Prevention eLearning course

All of us at some point have slipped or tripped or even fallen over. We often end up with grazed knees, a hole in our trousers and an embarrassed face but sometimes it can be much worse. Slips, trips and falls can quite literally change lives.

One moment we are running up and down stairs, nipping to the shops, going to the gym or playing sport and the next we could have a broken bone, and be laid up for months, not able to live a normal life. For people who are older or who have learning disabilities sometimes life is never the same after a fall.

In this online training course, we will explore who is at risk from falls including us at work, and how to assess these risks. We will give tips on how to prevent falls both in the workplace and when supporting people. We will look at ways to support people, and at how to help someone when they have fallen.

“Just to say the information was clear and concise and just the right amount, the flipping of the pictures was a great way of reinforcing the information. Keep up the good work”
