Don’t Let A Slip, Trip, Fall Spoil The Holidays

Slips, trips and falls are the primary cause of work related liability claims and we all need to do a better job to eliminate these incidents.  These are serious problems that cost institutions money, lost time and more.  Even more important, they cause pain and trouble for the victims.

Slips are caused by wet or highly-polished surfaces, weather hazards (ice or snow), rushing, improper footwear, etc.  Be extra cautious when walking, and report or wipe up spills, salt icy surfaces and wear sensible shoes.  Employees are asked to watch where they walk, to carry large loads carefully and keep work areas tidy.  Please keep aisles and stairs free of clutter, don’t jump off platforms or truck beds and always use handrails when available.
