005 - Head Over Tea Kettle - Slips, Trips, & Choosing The Right Traction Radio Free Tenacity

    • Business

Overview:
If over a quarter century of America’s Funniest Home Videos has taught us anything, it’s that people fall—a lot. But with falls accounting for over 30,000 deaths in the U.S. each year (the third highest among accidental deaths), it’s not always as funny as Bob Saget, Tom Bergeron, Alfonso Ribiero or *insert dad-joke machine here* make it seem. 


The cost of these accidents is steep—with the average disabling claim costing a hefty $28,000. The good news? The right traction device cost just a few bucks to keep you upright and out of harm's way. But choosing the right one is key. Peter Freeberg, ACS Safety Manager at Minneapolis-St.Paul International Airport, joins us to discuss the challenges of keeping his crews upright in the frozen north. 


Show Highlights:
How to drive PPE compliance by giving work crews a deeper sense of ownership in the selection processHow the right ice cleats/traction devices improve safety & productivity How the wrong ice cleats/traction devices can actually cause injuries and equipment damage
