Slips, Trips, and Falls Cost Employers Billions Each Year
Protect your employees and yourself with the right safety solutions
The most cited violation following inspections of worksites by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is for the risk of slips, trips, and falls on walking and/or working surfaces within the workplace, as outlined in 29 CFR 1910.22-.30.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, hundreds of fatalities and thousands of serious injuries occur in the workplace or at the job site each year due to slips, trips, and falls. While falls from elevated levels to lower levels present the greatest risk, a majority of injuries occur on same-level walking/working surfaces.
Most of these incidents can be avoided by implementing best-practice safety protocols, saving employers billions of dollars in lost productivity. Part of your safety plan should include preventing incidents altogether. That means containing drips and spills, covering exposed cords and cables, and ensuring employees understand where potential dangers exist throughout the facility or job site. Fortunately, we offer dozens of solutions to help you mitigate such risks.
