Use flashlights or helmet lights to identify holes or floor openings, damp or slippery surfaces, and debris or equipment early enough.
Visually inspect any surface before walking on it to guarantee there are no gaps, holes or weak spots and that it can carry workers and their equipment.
Wear rucksacks and tool belts to hold gear and keep both hands free.
Where possible, avoid stepping on wet/slippery surfaces; clean the bottom of your footwear.
Use communication devices, especially hands-free devices, for communicating with other employees or incident commanders about slip, trip and fall risks.
Never transport equipment or loads in your hands when ascending ladders.
Use fall protection gear when walking or working on emergency response actions near unsafe edges of raised surfaces.
