Slips, Trips, and Falls continue to be one of the greatest causes of injuries to the public and to employees. Reducing the opportunities for slip, trip, and fall accidents to occur requires more than just reactive actions and general maintenance. A proactive approach with a commitment from the entire organization is needed to combat these potentially life-changing events.
Fortunately, many solutions to the slip, trip, and fall issue are not complex. During this presentation, the speakers will provide statistics from multiple sources that highlight the frequency of incidents and the cost of slip, trip and fall to organizations and to society. They will also review recent court cases that demonstrate the increased frequency of nuclear verdicts from third party incidents, and how these costs and trends impact the ability of organizations to conduct business in a cost-effective manner. Finally, they will discuss the role of the safety professional in managing these costs as part of their organization’s enterprise risk management goals.
