Test & Certification

Slips and trips in the workplace can be fatal. They can also leave people with major injuries, some unrecoverable, and change lives forever. These accidents are the most common workplace hazards – they add up to over a third of all major work injuries. It’s for this reason that training is essential for all employees, employers and contractors.

At the end of the online slips and trips training, you will be given a 20-question, multiple-choice test. The required pass rate is 85%. You will be able to download and print a digital certificate on completion of the course. A course certificate is 12 months for this annual refresher.


The course will take approximately 23 minutes to complete, excluding the final exam.
