As a huge fan of FAILBlog, I’ve become accustomed to seeing cringe-inducing stunts-gone-very-wrong on a daily basis, some of which may be humorous. So when I saw this week’s featured title on the shelf, I couldn’t help but give it a look.
Kendzior, CEO of Traction Experts and founder of the National Floor Safety Institute, isn’t laughing when it comes to the slips and falls. He takes this $80 billion issue very seriously. In three parts, the author examines the accidents themselves and the damage caused, the cause of the falls and then what can be done to address them. Kendzior provides plenty of data and statistics to back up his claims, pulling from his own organization, the National Safety Council, the Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA) and others to illustrate the severity of slips and falls.
