Slips, Trips, and Falls

July 1, 2015  (Monticello - Corporate Office)

Monticello, IA – Innovative Ag Services Co. (IAS), focuses on safety every day.  This month our safety topic is Slips, Trips, and Falls. Every year over 300,000 people are injured in the workplace by slips, trips, and falls (an average of one every two minutes). According to the US Department of Labor, 15 percent of accidental workplace deaths are caused by slips, trips and falls, second only to traffic crash fatalities. Slips, Trips and Falls also occur in public places and at home.

To reduce the risk of Slips, Trips and Falls, there are some basic preventative measures that can be followed. Basic preventative measures include but are not limited to:

  • Making sure all walk ways and drive ways are clean, dry and maintained on a regular basis
  • Wearing appropriate footwear
  • Placing caution signs to warn others of a potential risk of slipping, tripping or falling.
  • Being aware of your surroundings

Slips, Trips and Falls can cause minor to fatal injuries. IAS encourages you to do your part to prevent Slips, Trips and Falls.
