Preventing Summer Slips, Trips and Falls

Everyone knows to be careful during the winter months when temperatures dip below freezing and there’s snow or ice on the ground.

What people often neglect to consider is that hazards still exist in the summer months, both indoors and outdoors. In fact, it’s the element of surprise that can make summer slips, trips and falls more severe than those that occur in winter.

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.
