Healthcare Incidence Rates Are 90% Greater Than All Other Private Industries Combined
The healthcare industry is no stranger to long days and nights and busy, fast-paced shifts. Each day, hospital employees including doctors, nurses, maintenance staff, medical technicians, building and grounds staff, food service workers, laundry, housekeeping, and administrative personnel are exposed to many forms of safety hazards. Workplace hazards your teams face include slippery floors, lack of signage, stairs and kitchen restaurants. Hazards such as these can cause minor to severe injuries, or worse – a fatality. The accelerated pace and continuous movements associated within hospitals keep your employees at risk of slip and fall accidents. Hazardous work conditions further expose your team to life-threatening dangers and increase the likelihood that a slip-and-fall related accident or workplace injury will occur.
