Steps to keep people from falling and getting hurt

Slips, trips and falls can happen at almost any building or facility in Georgia. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), falls are the second-leading cause of injury at work. Furthermore, floors and floor materials account for two million injuries per year. Typically, individuals slip or fall on floors that are wet or are made slippery by ice or oil. Mud, wet leaves and other items can also increase the risk of a person falling.

Easy safety measures to keep parking lots safe

Employers in Georgia or anywhere else may be liable for injuries that occur to employees in parking lots. Therefore, it is important that they take steps to ensure that workers are as safe as possible while on a lot or in a parking garage.

Bright paint, physical barriers or large signs can help direct traffic in a lot or in a garage.
