Slips and falls are major safety threats in the workplace, but they're often overlooked. The reality of the situation is that slips and falls are both surprisingly common and exceedingly dangerous. In fact, these accidents represent about one-quarter of all accident injury claims reported across most industries, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
If you're on your feet all day, you've got a lot riding on your shoes. And chances are, you've got issues with them too. It may be how you're lacing them up. Depending on the shape of your feet, changing the way you tie your shoes can completely change the way they feel, not to mention how you feel about them.
Slips and falls are the primary cause of injury in the workplace. They result in over 1 million emergency room visits a year, and 22 percent of these accidents cause at least 31 days missed from work. Curious if your work puts you at risk?
