“Many people don’t realize how serious slips, trips and falls can be. In fact, they are second only to vehicle accidents as the primary cause of accidental death, and, according to the National Safety Council, slips and falls are the leading cause of fatalities in most workplaces and responsible for over 20 percent of disabling injuries.” - Sandra Green, Training Solutions Sales Manager, Public Sector
