If you are like most adults, you will probably use the stairs over 500,000 times in your life! With all of those steps, you may have had a few instances of slipping, stumbling, or falling. With that kind of experience, many people don’t consider walking up or down the stairs to be a high-risk activity. However, even the smallest instance can make that daily walk up or down the stairs dangerous enough to send you to the hospital.
Allied Universal employees need to diligently be on the lookout for any hazards in the work environment that could put us at risk of a fall. If you observe a hazard, such as a loose handrail, an uneven stair, or an unmarked trip hazard, report this to your supervisor immediately. Supervisors can work to correct the hazard and may redirect our work temporarily while the condition is being corrected.
