According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are over 700 fatalities caused by slips, trips and falls each year in the United States. Given these alarmingly high numbers, it’s clear that organizations need to put more focus in and dedicate more resources towards developing and executing walking-working surface programs.
