Top 10 Costliest Workplace Injuries - Slips, Trips & Falls - A-1 Can Help!

Facility managers should take note of this safety index released in 2014 by the Liberty Mutual Research Institute. The study includes 2012 data statistics compiled by the Bureau of Labor on the top ten causes and costs of the most disabling workplace injuries.

A-1 Concrete Leveling services can help reduce any facilities exposure for three of the top ten categories: falls on the same level, falls to lower level, and slip or trip without fall.

Falls on the same level ranked second. With $9.19 billion in direct costs this category accounted for 15.4% of the total injury burden. Falls to lower level ranked fourth with $5.12 billion and 8.6% of the burden. Slip or trip without fall ranked seventh with $2.17 billion and 3.6% of the burden.

$16.48 billion dollars is the combined cost of falls, trips and slips in the workplace.

If your facility has sunken or uneven slabs, be proactive and call A-1 at 716-341-4550 today for your complementary consultation. We look forward to helping you reduce your liability.

  1. There are so many concrete leveling service providers now-a-days it has become so very difficult to make the most reliable and trust worthy choice.
