Avoid Workplace Hazards with Slip, Trip and Fall Controls
Fresh from the Risk Management Corner blog from Federated Insurance is an article emphasizing the reasons why manufacturers should not lose sight of the need to protect their employees from slips, trips and falls.

“Each year, thousands of workers are injured or disabled as a result of slips, trips and falls,” the article notes, “which may occur anytime, anywhere or to anyone…. Unfortunately, they are not uncommon occurrences in the workplace—about 20 to 25 percent of all occupational-injury accidents involve slips, trips and falls.”

The article lists several leading—and avoidable—causes of slips, trips and falls, including inappropriate footwear, obstacles in walkways and unsafe ladder use. Then it describes how the use of engineering controls can help manufacturers evaluate their physical environment and rectify any hazards.
