Tips from Tindall
Please review this article below regarding the hazards wet floors posed to your business in terms of injuries to employees and customers:

Slippery When Wet - The Hazards of Wet Floors

Accidents and injuries at work are any manager or employer's worst nightmare. 


Not only do they mean a loss in the workforce temporarily but they can typically mean workers compensation and even lawsuits from customers, both of which cost money. For most employees, safety practices while on the job are things they learn in the very beginning stages of their training and continue to be updated on throughout their employment. 


Health and safety trainers are sure to go over evacuation routes should there be a fire, how to properly enter and exit company vehicles, how to operate various equipment or machinery in the office or facility, and much more to ensure the safety of their employers. 


However, there is one crucial area that is often overlooked or brought up as an afterthought, even though it is the number two leading cause of personal injuries second only to motor vehicle accidents. Slip and fall accidents are in the top five causes of workers compensation in the United States.

Time for Summer Picnic?



Summer is here, and along with it comes what is for some employers an annual tradition: the company picnic.


  For many employers, the company picnic is something long past left in better times. Yet, for those few, those happy few who still host a company picnic, this is an exciting time of year.


When else can employees showcase their sometimes below average athletic skills freely in front of colleagues from whom they've long fought to earn respect?  Do you remember going to a company picnic as a youth with your family? Company picnics can be a great opportunity to boost morale, especially in lean times.

They allow employees the chance to commiserate about the weather while actually being outside in the weather they're commiserating about. Unfortunately, some companies still fall victim to the "situations" that can result from combining coworkers, heat, sporting events, and (if you truly like to live dangerously) alcohol. 

Here are some common sense tips to prevent that awkward morning-after call to the employment attorney or the liability insurance company


*Don't force or "highly encourage" employees to attend or participate in events.

Guess it's hard to believe but some employees don't like being "forced" to spend time with coworkers when they're not being paid to do so. 


*Don't serve alcohol.

As with holiday parties, alcohol can (and often does) lead to unwelcome actions or comments which can lead to allegations of harassment.


*Hold the event off premises.

This may be more expensive but it also reduces company liability because employees or their family members won't accidentally hurt themselves on some part of your property.


*Review your company policies and act accordingly.

 Just as with holiday parties, picnics are a work-sponsored event.Remind employees, especially supervisors, that you expect them to conduct themselves in accordance with company policies should they choose to attend. Be prepared to investigate claims of harassment or other inappropriate behavior in accordance with your company's policies, and discipline employees accordingly.  


This is far from a complete list of tips. Some other common sense tips to keep in mind would be to be aware of the lyrics of your music selection, consider religious and dietary needs when choosing what food to serve. Closely pay attention to the weather forecast, and be sure that everyone stays hydrated,(have plenty of (non-alcoholic) fluids available for employees and their families if it is a hot day). 


Just remember, as with holiday parties, common sense can help reduce legal exposure and increase enjoyment at all types of company picnics.

At Tindall Law Firm we work hard for clients every day. We all want to see clients receive the justice and compensation they deserve. I hope you all have had a great summer and are looking forward to the fall season.
