Dear Snow Contractor: You are more at risk for slipping and falling than anyone else!
with Phill Sexton and John Janes

In the Spring of 2017, SIMA surveyed the industry to understand what the most common types of accidents that result in injuries, lost work time, and ultimately workman’s comp claims are. The results were staggering, over 50% of injuries reported were the result of slipping and falling, the very thing the industry is out there trying to help reduce! Join us as we walk through some results of the survey and a job safety analysis of several hazardous scenarios.
