Employees can easily recognize the hazards associated with material handling, welding, machine operation, electrical work and other dangerous job tasks, but they tend to overlook more common hazards that affect everyone. Some of these common hazards affect a lot of people with a wide variety of job descriptions, but these employees all share a common job title when it comes to these particular hazards: pedestrian. More than 25 million workers suffer some type of injury while walking at work each year. Like other on-the-job injuries, these incidents can be prevented. This video shows employees the precautions they must take to avoid incidents while walking.
