SLIPS, TRIPS AND FALLS

Slips, trips and falls can happen in any part of the workplace, inside or outdoors, regardless of the job you work in.  Some of the issues that can lead to employees, students and visitors being exposed to these hazards are the following:
·         Distracted walking (listening, playing or talking on devices)
·         Uneven floors
·         Poor housekeeping (spills and slippery floors)
·         Weather (wet/icy conditions)
·         Clutter of loose cords
·         Unsecured rugs and mats

These can lead to serious injuries and even death.  Eliminate hazards such as these before someone gets hurt. Awareness, good housekeeping practices and a positive safety culture at work help keep everyone safe.
