At Home Safety Talks

Working safely at home is just as important as working safely on the job. If employees are injured off of the job it is just as bad (or worse) for them as being injured on the job. Injuries that occur off the job also impact business operations. Everyone plays an important part at work and when someone is missing everyone in the workplace can be negatively impacted.

Unfortunately injuries and fatalities occur all too often in the home environment. According to one study published on the National Center for Biotechnology Information site, over 30,000 unintentional injury deaths occurring in the home environment in the U.S. on an annual basis during the period of 2000-2008. The CDC reports that the number of emergency department visits for unintentional injuries was 30.8 million in 2015. Factor in the injuries that were not treated in the hospital and the number is even more staggering. It is important that employees take safety home with them.
