Wellness News & Tips for November

Upcoming Slip, Trip and Fall Safety Presentation
 

Hazards are everywhere.  Wet floors, an open drawer, slippery shoes, or an icy walkway, all of which can lead to serious, painful injuries. Categorized as Slip, Trip and Fall hazards, they are one of the leading causes of accidents in the workplace and account for at least 20% of all worker’s compensation claims.  They are the most common and the most preventable workplace injury.   

 
Protect yourself and your co-workers by learning how slips, trips and falls occur, how you can prevent them and what you can do to report or clean up these hazards, by attending our Wellness presentation on “How to prevent those Slips, Trips and Falls that we have all experienced”.
 
When:  November 20th at Noon
Where:  Booth Ferris South
Presenter:  Denise Freeman
 
This activity will count for 10 points in the Wellness Rewards Program.  Details for obtaining these points will be given at the presentation.
