Slips, trips and fall accidents are a leading cause of injury across all industries. But in construction, falls are particularly devastating, accounting for more worker deaths than any other hazard.
Sadly, almost all of these types of injuries are entirely preventable. Floors and stairs can be cleaned when something is spilt, non-slip mats can be replaced when grip wears out and railings can be placed across wall openings and unfinished structures. But often these simple measures aren’t taken.
