Three Points of Contact

Tripping while using stairways and ladders or getting into and out of vehicles is a common cause of workplace injuries. This risk can be reduced or avoided by maintaining 3 points of contact with a secure surface such as using one hand to hold the handrail in addition to having both feet on the steps as you move up or down a stairway or ladder. Using hand holds and two feet on the ground or steps climbing into and out of a vehicle cabin will help to reduce this common workplace injury risk as well.
