Slips, trips and falls are the second-leading cause of employee injury nationally, with these types of injuries increasing by 41 percent since 1998. Additionally, slips, trips and falls are also a leading cause of customer injuries.
Taken as a whole, it’s obvious that doing everything possible to prevent slips, trips and falls is not just a priority — it’s a necessity.
