We're entering the long, dark days of cold weather in much of the country for the next five months, and it's not a stretch to warn that potentially thousands of people will be injured or killed by ice. Slips and falls account for 300,000 serious injuries and 20,000 deaths a year, many due to snow and ice.
The statistics are stunning: Nine million slip, trip, and fall injuries require emergency room visits every year. About 25,000 slip, trip, and fall accidents occur daily in the United States. A victim of such an injury on the job misses an average of 38 work days - more than a month. Fractures are the most serious consequences of falls. In total, 95 million lost workdays occur annually due to slip, trip, and fall injuries.
With millions of positive coronavirus cases in America, this pandemic continues to change the world as we know it. New challenges to not only keep businesses, workers, customers, and the public safe but also to reduce the impact of COVID-19 are continuous reminders that we all have a significant role in preventing the spread of this virus.
