“Small Falls Are A Big Deal!”
The facts on preventing falls

In most workplaces, slips, trips and falls are one of the most common causes of injuries. People are injured when they fall, whether it is on-the-job or off-the-job, resulting in minor to devastating, life-altering injuries, and in many cases, even death. After all, that’s how Dr. Atkins from the famous Atkins’s Diet died. He slipped on some ice, fell, hit his head on the sidewalk and died.

I’ve dealt with over 250 people who have been injured from falls. Most of the injuries were caused by falls from the same level or low level falls.

I’ve spent over 22 years working as a firefighter and paramedic and I’ve dealt with hundreds of injures as a result of slips, trips and falls. I’ve written six books and hundreds of articles on safety. Besides writing about my experiences, I speak on them and have spoken across North America to companies such as Boeing, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Illinois Army National Guard, and Shell, to name a few.

I thought it was time to write a book on slips, trips and falls.

I made a video with ERI-Safety Videos on this vital topic and the response has been tremendous, but I wanted to get this message out in as many different mediums as I could. An easy to read booklet made sense…so here it is.

In this book you will learn:
Why same level falls are more serious than you think. (page 5)
Why the fall never hurts but how the sudden stop actually kills you. (page 13)
How changing conditions can have devastating results. (page 43)
One of the easiest ways to prevent a broken ankle. (page 37)
How a fighter pilot skill can save your from a fall. (page 41)

These are just a few of the points that are made in this book. Since every employee should read this, I am offering huge volume discounts.
