Protecting Workers from Slips, Trips and Falls during Disaster Response

Responding to natural and man-made disasters puts emergency response workers at risk of injury or death from slips, trips and falls.

Steps employers must take to keep workers safe:

  • Conduct pre-incident disaster response planning and ensure that emergency workers know the plan.
  • Assess the workplace to determine if hazards are present or are likely to be present.
  • Provide protective equipment to prevent slips, trips and falls including:
  • – Slip-resistant footwear (e.g., rubber soles).
  • – Gloves so workers can grip railings/ladders safely to steady themselves.
  • – Head protection
  • – Personal fall protection
  • Train workers to identify hazards, including those that require protective equipment, and how to prevent injury
