Slips, trips and falls are the leading cause of worker accidents. And because inconspicuous slippery spots are harder to identify, they're more likely to cause a slip and fall accident.
Take a clipboard or notebook and look around your facility to identify potential hazards — especially in these areas:
Production: Overspray, machine leaks, metal shavings, condensation from pipes, clutter.
Fluid Transfer: Leaks and drips from pumps, faucets and hoses.
Fleet Maintenance: Open oil pans and containers, oily or wet floors, trip hazards.
Warehouses and Loading Docks: Rain or snow seeping under doors, loose packing materials, leaking containers.
Entrances: Entrance mats that don't lay flat or capture water, poor lighting, low friction floor surfaces.
Restrooms and Locker Rooms: Wet and slippery floors, overflowing waste cans, leaky soap dispensers.
How does your list look? Chances are you found a couple of things that no one has noticed, so now you can take steps to correct the problems and make your facility a safer place.
