About Safety Housekeeping and Accident Prevention
Each year on-the-job accidents cause millions of people to suffer painful injuries, and result in billions of dollars worth of damage.
In fact, in this country someone suffers an accident related injury once every four seconds. All told, accidents cost almost $90 billion a year in medical bills, lost wages and lost production time.
A number of these accidents are caused by the conditions around us. If people were more aware of the hazardous conditions in their workplace, and practiced good "Safety Housekeeping" to help rid themselves of these hazards, many accidents would never happen.
