MEMIC Safety Experts Podcast
Episode #45 | Published May 10, 2021
In 2019 the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported there were 190,000 slip and fall events that resulted in time away from work. 60% of those were falls on the same surface. Any surface is the interface with our shoes and together they provide stability for our base of support while moving. The surface composition and condition are key to the efficiency of our movements. A stable surface compatible with the work being done is a good place to start when trying to prevent Slip and Fall events.
On this episode of the MEMIC Safety Experts Podcast, I speak with Patrick Dooley, CSP and Senior Environmental Health and Safety Specialist for LL Bean. We are going to get under the surface of slip and fall injuries and discuss how understanding your surfaces can help reduce slip and fall events.
