Quick Take on Safety: Entryways

This Quick Take focuses on slip, trip and fall exposures related to entryways and prevention methods. Quick Takes help keep safety in the forefront of employees’ minds and demonstrate a commitment to safety on the part of the organization by improving safety culture. The Quick Take also offers an opportunity for employees to ask questions, discuss safety topics and develop solutions to specific hazards while encouraging communication.
