Georgia employers may be interested in learning about the different ways that the risk of slip and fall incidents at the workplace can be reduced. According to published data, unsafe walking surfaces account for over 50 percent of the trips, slips and falls that occur at the workplace. The injuries typically happen as a result of the job site floor not being level, dry or clean at the time of the incident.
On Sept. 1, officials with the American Red Cross reported that 16 families were displaced after a fire raged through a Georgia apartment complex the previous day. Three people were taken to a hospital for treatment but none of the injuries that were suffered were considered to be life-threatening.
