Is your organization faced with slip, trip, and fall issues that just won't go away? Have you been dealing with similar incidents and losses for years even though you've spent significant time and money on prevention? If so, you are not alone!
It is estimated that slips, trips, and falls account for 17% of disabling work injuries and are 15 to 20 percent of all workers' compensation costs. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there were over 234,000 non-fatal slips, trips, and falls last year (unfortunately, there were also 789 fatalities).
It is easy to see that slips, trips, and falls are routinely one of the top causes of injuries in workplaces. They also subtract from a company's bottom line due to medical and workers' comp insurance, lost productivity and retraining costs.
In this program we will confront some of the most common but often unrecognized mistakes made in slip, trip, and fall prevention, and learn how to help employees avoid making them.
