Let me introduce Napo. Napo is the star of an animated series of video shorts that center on a worker who finds himself in situations over which he has no control, identifies hazards or risks, and then makes good suggestions to improve safety and work organization. These videos combine humor and wordless language for universal work-safety education.
Let’s talk about slips and trips.
Watch Napo in… No laughing matter and consider sharing with your employees.
Slips, trips and falls are a significant cause of injuries for business. They are second to only automobile accidents in disabling injuries.
Most slips occur in wet or ‘contaminated’ conditions, and most trips are due to poor housekeeping. The solutions are often simple and cost-effective. An assessment of the risks should identify the necessary controls which include:
- Prevention of contamination
- Management of spills
- Suitable footwear
- Workplace design
- Appropriate flooring
- Good housekeeping
- Effective training and supervision
This film, which is suitable for all sectors and all levels of employees, seeks to promote good practice and emphasizes that slip and trip accidents are ‘no laughing matter.’
