Did you know slips, trips and falls are the second leading cause of accidental deaths behind motor vehicles resulting in 12,000 deaths a year?
- Contribute to the majority of general industry accidents
- Make up about 25% of reported claims a year
- Over 17% of occupational injuries that leave a worker disabled are a result of a fall
Equally as shocking is the fact that majority of these injuries could have been avoided. Sometimes we get so caught up in our day-to-day activities, take unnecessary risks, and tend to put safety on the backburner. With June being National Safety Month, let’s be sure to make safety our top priority for ourselves and loved ones!
