Walking and Working Surfaces Training & Certification

What do we offer? Whether you want walking and working surfaces training and certification in as little as two hours with our online training or a more robust, customizable option like you get with our DIY training kits or on-site training, we can help you get the walking and working surfaces training you want in the way you want it and at a price you can afford.

What are my options for walking and working surfaces training?

Training Kits

The kit is for those who want to do the training themselves. It's a walking and working surfaces training powerpoint presentation to train any number of people, at one time, in one location<. If you need to train a trainer to use the kit we offer a trainer course.

Online Training

Online training is for those who prefer self-paced training from any location or for employers who need to assign employees courses and monitor progress and exam scores. Online training is eligible for bulk pricing discounts for groups of 16+ trainees.

Train the Trainer

Train the trainer courses are online and meant to certify a single individual to use the training kit to train others. The kit is included with the train the trainer online course for no additional cost and is reusable. Results in a lifetime certification.

Onsite Training

Onsite training is for companies looking for hands-on training at your location. Our OSHA-compliant trainer comes to you (from Rexburg, Idaho) so travel expenses are included, because of this onsite training is best for groups of at least 5-10+ trainees.

What's in the Walking and Working Surfaces Training Course?

Our Walking & Working Surfaces Safety Training course is regulation compliant, and our online version fulfills OSHA’s classroom training requirement. This class contains sections on outdoor and indoor surfaces, prevention, accident profiles, and more.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam.

Though you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, provincial, territorial, and local standards, this training encompasses the following standards:

  • Encompasses these U.S. Standards
  • OSHA 29 CFR 1910.21 Subpart D – Walking-Working Surfaces

  • Encompasses these Canadian Standards
  • CLC 2.14 (1) (2) (3)

  • CLC 3.14 & 3.15

  • British Columbia, OHS 4.39-4.41

  • Saskatchewan, Part IX Section 124,189,195

  • Yukon Part 1.51 (1)(2)(3)

Why do I need walking and working surfaces training?

Regulations make it very clear that any employees working in or around slip, trip, and fall hazards must be trained (no matter how long they’ve been on the job). The standards also state that the employer is responsible for overseeing employee safety training and evaluating the permit space program in order to confirm that the employees have the understanding, knowledge, and skills needed for safe confined space entry operations.

When it comes to refresher training, the standards in some instances (like forklifts) are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.

  • Did You Know?

  • In 2013, nearly 600 workers died in falls from a higher level.

  • More than 8.7 million people are treated in emergency rooms for fall-related injuries every year. (Source: National Safety Council)
