"Slip and Fall Prevention" Wednesday, Dec. 2nd

With Winter fast approaching, it is important to remember that slips and falls affect more than 13 million people annually. Contrary to many people’s perceptions slips and falls can be very serious. They often result in injury or even death, and exact billions of dollars in medical costs.

Join OSHA and Applied Ergonomics specialist Steven M. Jones on Wednesday evening, December 2nd at 6:30 PM for a lecture on how to help prevent serious injuries due to slips and falls. This program shows what you can do to decrease or eliminate slip and fall hazards and create a new awareness to your surroundings. Subjects include a discussion of footing, traction, surface conditions, elevations, stairs, stability in walking and balance, footwear, and interesting, humorous facts about feet and our ability to get from one location to another.

Steven Jones holds two advanced degrees from Southern Connecticut State University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has published articles on musculoskeletal injuries, and is an authorized instructor in HAZMAT, CPR/AED and First Aid, the National Traffic Safety Institute, and the Brain Trauma Foundation. He is a resident of Hampton, NH.

This lecture is free and open to the public, with time set aside after the lecture for questions from the audience. For more information, please contact Darrell Eifert at 926-3368.
