Approximately 300,000 U.S. employees are disabled each year as a result of slip, trip and fall accidents. In Colorado, slips, trips and falls are almost always the No. 1 cause of employee injuries.

If you’re a member of the CRA Safety Group, this class qualifies for one of your required trainings! Register for this FREE seminar.
