Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. The song for injured workers should be , Don’t let me fall, Don’t let me fall, Don’t let me fall. Inevitably, we have all had our fair share of slip and falls on icy pavements, roads or stairs. If you happen to fall while in the course and scope of your employment, it is considered a work injury. November through March proves to be the worst time for back, knee and wrist injuries. If you think about the mechanism of a fall, you try to brace and balance yourself with your arms and legs. In the process of this action, you end up hurting your extremities as well as your back. You should report this right away to a supervisor or manager and fill out an incident report. If the employer tries to discourage you by using the old “bad weather” excuse, tell him or her to stick it where the sun-don’t-shine (Just Kidding). Stand your ground and report the incident.
