Have you ever nodded off behind the wheel? If you have, you know how frightening it can be. In most cases, it just lasts for a second. But, as your eyes snap back open and you realize you almost fell asleep, adrenaline surges through your body. You know how close you were to a car accident.
We often make light of slip-and-fall accidents, but the reality is that they can lead to very serious injuries on the job. They're also more common than many people realize. Risks that workers face include changes in flooring surfaces, unexpected hazards and a general sense that they need to hurry and rush to get a job done on time. All of those things can lead to an accident that puts a worker in the hospital.
