March 2021 Safety Meeting Topics
I ordered a chicken and an egg online. I’ll let you know.
I don’t know about the chicken and the egg but when safety comes first we save. We save time, we save money and we save everyone from the effects of a workplace injury.
Many of the most common workplace injuries are actually random incidents.
Here are four of the top reported workplace injures:
Pushing, pulling, lifting, holding, carrying, throwing are all in this category which has consistently been the number one cause of workplace injuries.
Slipping / Tripping
The second most common workplace injury results from falls on wet, slippery floors or trips over something lying on the floor.
A reaction injury is when you slip or trip but don’t fall.
“Walking Into” Injuries
This happens when an employee accidentally runs into or collides with walls, doors, cabinets, windows, tables, chairs, boxes, or other things stacked in a passageway.
Injuries can be very disruptive and costly to the injured worker, their family, and your business. Many of these seemingly simple, random accidents are preventable.

Stay safe, stay happy!
