Health and Safety

Walkway Clutter Can Lead to Dangerous Falls
— Falls, slips and trips on the job cause more than 300,000 disabling injuries every year in the United States.
— Falls are the second-leading cause of accidental death in the home, taking the lives of 9,300 people in the United States in 2000.
— Falls account for about 20 percent of emergency room visits in the United States.

Safety Smarts:
— If you make a mess, clean it up. Never let safety be someone else's job.

— Keep passageways and stairs clean and clear.
— If you see a housekeeping hazard, remove, repair or report it.
— Put away tools and equipment promptly after using them.
