Safety Wednesday!

As we continue to celebrate National Safety Month, we’ve created another post centered around accident prevention. This week we’ll address Workplace Injury Prevention. Overexertion (e.g., lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, or carrying objects) and bodily reactions have long been the leading cause of work-related injuries and illnesses, with the recent exception of COVID-19 in 2020.  Included below is information to increase awareness of the greatest injury and illness risks on the job.
