Falls from mobile equipment are one of the major causes of injury in the road-building industry. Many of these falls occur when workers are mounting or dismounting mobile equipment. The app discusses that to reduce risk when entering or exiting mobile equipment, the worker should always maintain three points of contact - this means keeping two hands and one foot—or two feet and one hand—on the equipment at all times. It also covers such things as the equipment being stationary, keeping handholds and footholds clear of mud, snow, grease, and other materials that can increase the risk of slips, trips, and falls. The form also includes a section to record the staff who attended the training including their signature and the company they work for. There is also a section for the manager's remarks about the training.
