It’s no surprise that safety leaders have to deal with many issues simultaneously. Having this busy job often has side effects, and leader sometimes drop some balls, complete some tasks with barely minimal attention, and are split and frazzled. The good news is that the same mindset of getting several things done at one time can also work towards injury prevention. This especially applies to sizably reducing two of the most common types of injuries in many companies—soft-tissue (strain/ sprains) and slips/trips/falls (STFs)—at the same time. These two kinds of injuries are costly in almost every business sector, accounting for 64.7 percent of all compensable injury costs, according to the 2018 Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index. And, that’s just in direct costs. (Source: Occupational Health and Safety, 2019).
