From the Praetor's Office-Turn Around Don't Drown October 01 2015, 0 Comments

Each year, more deaths occur due to flooding than from any other thunderstorm related hazard. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that over half of all flood-related drownings occur when a vehicle is driven into hazardous flood water. The next highest percentage of flood-related deaths is due to walking into or near flood waters.
People underestimate the force and power of water. Many of the deaths occur in automobiles as they are swept downstream. Of these drownings, many are preventable, but too many people continue to drive around the barriers that warn you the road is flooded. A mere 6 inches of fast-moving flood water can knock over an adult. It takes just 12 inches of rushing water to carry away a small car, while 2 feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles. It is NEVER safe to drive or walk into flood waters

They are also the second leading cause of work-related accidental deaths behind auto accidents, with figures reaching 15%. Common injuries due to slip, trip and falls may include: sprains, broken bones, head and back injuries, as well as lacerations.

Company Losses Related to Slips, Trips and Falls:


The costs related to slip and fall accidents can add up quickly and drastically cut into your company’s bottom line. In 2006, the Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index reported the average cost of a slip and fall to be $22,800 per incident, with workers comp claims averaging $19,000.

The out-of-pocket expenditures effect multiple areas of the company. Some of the most common outlays your company may be responsible for:

• Court costs
• Compensation for punitive damages
• Possible repair costs to equipment damaged during injury
• Loss of work and downtime on behalf of injured employee
• Higher insurance premiums
