Slips & Falls during the Winter Months
January 4, 2017
The Armstrong Consultants want to remind you that slip and fall accidents account for 15% of all accidental deaths in the United States. Annually, an estimated one million Americans will have an injury related to a fall, 600,000 will be hospitalized and 17,000 deaths will occur.
Due to the increased risk of snow and ice, winter months are particularly dangerous and costly to businesses as fall rates increase. If you reside in colder climates you will want to take a look at our resource Preventing Slips & Falls during the Winter Months. It includes a list of tips to help ensure safe walking conditions for employees, residents/tenants, guests and shoppers; as well as templates for an incident report and snow and ice removal log for your convenience.
