Reduce Injuries at Work
Monday, February 23, 2009 at 2:35:17 PM

Train your workers how to reduce injuries while at work – Proper Occupational Health and Safety Training helps workers understand the risk of not following safe work procedures.
Every year, about 20 people die due to falls in Ontario workplaces. For example:

• A worker fell from a roof
• Another slipped and fell hitting his head on a concrete floor.
• A worker fell 15 feet from a ladder

Each of these workers’ families lost a spouse, brother, sister, son, daughter or parent as a result of the fall.

Other workers suffered critical injuries such as broken limbs, cracked ribs and head injuries.

The following are some real instances of how workers fell:

• Tripped over a hose on the floor
• Fell from a lift truck
• Fell off a stool, off a vehicle, and off a ladder.

Unfortunately, slips, trips and falls continue to happen every day.
