According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), slips, trips and falls (STF’s) cause nearly 700 fatalities per year and many more injuries and accidents in the workplace. A worker doesn’t have fall from a high level to suffer fatal or serious injuries; 154 workers were killed and 147,390 injured in falls on the same level. Falls can happen anywhere, even at a “desk job.” In 2019 STF’s were the 2nd most common type of claim here at the Trust, but they are the most costly. Industry experts agree that STF’s are thought to be 100% preventable. This webinar taught by Trust staff will help you recognize slip, trip and fall hazards in the workplace and educate you how to reduce and eliminate these types of injuries leading to a reduction in Workers’ Compensation injuries.
