June is National Safety Month!

Tips from the National Safety Council to help eliminate tripping hazards to prevent falls at home and at work:

  • Secure electrical and phone cords away from walking areas, such as hallways or in front of your desk
  • Use non-skid rugs and be sure to tape them down to prevent rolling
  • Keep drawers and cabinets closed when you’re not using them
  • Wear proper footwear, paying special attention to outdoor conditions
  • Clean up any spills immediately and include warning signage if necessary
  • Refrain from walking while distracted – stay focused on your surroundings
  • Ensure there is adequate lighting in your work space
  • Don’t carry more than you can handle—large loads can obstruct your vision and affect your balance
