PSHSA Slips, Trips & Falls Toolkit: Safety Talks Build Positive Health & Safety Culture
Safety talks are a great way to build a positive health and safety culture. Use the PSHSA Slips, Trips and Falls toolkit as your next Safety Talk theme.
Falls Awareness Week is May 6–10, 2019 and, along with the Ministry of Labour, the PSHSA encourages you to stop work for 15–30 minutes during the week to have a safety talk about fall hazards specific to your workplace. Talking about falls can lead to identifying hazards and gaps in knowledge or training.
The PSHSA’s goal is to support open dialogue about fall hazards at work and to foster a shift in workplace culture surrounding falls. As part of a workplace’s Internal Responsibility System, all workplace parties have a role to play in maintaining a healthy and safe workplace. Falls are preventable!
