Employees in Wisconsin spend a good chunk of time at work. Because of that, it is of utmost importance for these work environments to be safe, hazard-free, and comfortable. But every workplace has its share of dangers. What are some of the most common ones?
Most people may think about jobs with an obvious element of danger, such as the construction or roofing industries, when the subject of falls in the workplace comes up. While it is true that some industries have a higher incidence of falls than others, getting hurt from a fall on the job can happen in any setting. Wisconsin residents may protect themselves by considering the ways they might slip, trip or fall at their job.
