When working in the field, it is common for crews to navigate uneven terrain like rocks and tree roots. Pair that with the laundry list of tasks that need to be completed in a work day can make employees vulnerable to workplace falls, slips, and trips.
An article from Utility Products, references a study conducted by the National Library of Medicine. The study found that workers employed with a company for more than one year, experience 70 percent of the fall-related accidents when compared to workers who have been employed for less than one year. In 2019, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health reported that 27 percent of the 888,220 nonfatal work injuries were the result of slips, trips, and falls.
