With wintry weather upon us, it can be easy to develop a cavalier attitude about slips and falls. However, according to the National Council on Compensation Insurance’s (NCCI) Workers’ Compensation, the average cost per slip or fall in 2018-2019 was $47,681. Below are strategies to avoid preventable injuries to keep your workforce safe and healthy during the chilly weather season.
