National Ladder Safety Month

Every year over 300 people die in ladder-related accidents, and thousands suffer disabling injuries. Ladder accidents are preventable, but without better safety planning and training and continuous innovation in product design, we will still continue to see far too many fatalities.

Fall Prevention and Protection

Falls are the most common causes of serious work related injuries and deaths. Employers must set up the work place to prevent employees from falling off of overhead platforms, elevated work stations, or into holes in the floor and walls.

Risks of Working in the Cold

Workers in cold weather can be exposed to serious health problems such as hypothermia, frostbite and trench foot. In certain instances, workers exposed to severe weather without personal protection equipment can also suffer shock that could lead to death.

Employee Distracted Driving Awareness

On average, a non-fatal injury crash at work that involves distraction costs an employer $72,442. The National Safety Council states that the leading cause of workplace death is motor vehicle crashes, and estimates one-quarter of those crashes involve cell phone use.
