Welcome back to this week's Arbill blog series Reconsidered Safety Posts. We're retracing our steps back to once again shine light on past informative blog posts featuring common workplace safety themes.
For the first installment in this series, we're taking another look at workplace safety tips and suggestions to prevent slips, trips and falls from occuring in the workplace. Slips, trips and falls account for 1/3rd of all personal workplace injuries and are a top cause of workers' compensation claims.
This blog post is about preventing falls, the number one cause of fatalities in construction. It highlights and links to 12 videos that OSHA released to show how quickly workers are injured or killed on the job. Although the footage is sometimes stark, they are great visual tools to help in prevention efforts for construction-related workplace hazards.
This blog post features a running list of staggering statistics concerning slips, trips and falls. It really relates the frequency for which slips, trips and fall accidents occur, how many different ways they occur and how detrimental they are to workers and workers' compensation expenses.
We hope this trip back to past fall prevention Arbill blog posts serves as a reminder to make sure your workplace is taking the appropriate measures to avoid these costly accidents from occuring and reduce the risk for injury.
Check back on Wednesday for another Reconsidered Safety Posts topic to explore: Safety Gloves And Avoiding Hand Injuries.
