Slips and falls are the second leading cause of death next to motor vehicle accidents
SlipDoctors, the leading developer and manufacturer of anti-slip products worldwide, has today announced three new solutions to prevent risk and injury of employees in the workplace.
Slips and falls are far more common than you realize. These types of incidents, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), create about a quarter of all reported claims per year, and they result in about 15% of all accidental deaths—second only to motor vehicle incidents.
Most important in the analysis of slip, trip, and fall impact on industry and personal life is the fact that most of these injuries could have been prevented.
Companies like SlipDoctors acknowledge the magnitude of these statistics and dedicate their mission to improving the safety of homes, workplaces, and restaurants alike. Because the analysis of these fall risks is a large scientific endeavor, research is always in motion and influencing future efforts towards safety.
