Aquatic Health and Safety Awareness: Identifying Slip, Trip, and Fall Hazards

Date: Tuesday Mar 26, 2024
Time: 11:00-12:00
Location: Online

The Aquatics Health and Safety Awareness campaign is designed to raise awareness of occupational health and safety concerns for those working in and around aquatic facilities, and to provide free and accessible resources to workers (including vulnerable/new/young workers), supervisors, pool facility operators, and organizations. The webinars are no cost, open to all attendees, and will be recorded and made available following the event.

This 45-minute webinar is presented by a fall protection engineering expert who will highlight known and overlooked slip, trip, and fall hazards in the aquatic pool working environment. The subject matter expert will support you in strategizing how to start or enhance your existing fall protection program and how to identify hazards before selecting fall protection solutions. Following the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of our subject matter expert.

  • Identify known slip, trip, and fall hazards and their contributing factors.
  • Learn to create a strategy to identify slip, trip, and fall hazards.
  • Create awareness of slip, trip, all fall hazards specific to work parties/departments.
  • Review Alberta occupational health and safety legislation - specifically, hazard assessment [AB OHS Code 7(1)], and Fall Protection – General Protection [AB OHS Code139(1)].
