Hello, and welcome to another Risk Management Newsletter: Safety Matters! As always, we hope to provide resources and tips to help you better protect employees, minimize loss, and improve your organization's overall efficiency and productivity.

In this edition, we highlight why younger workers are at risk; how to prevent slips, trips, and falls; and office safety. As we enter a new year, now is the time to put a heightened focus on workplace safety.

Be sure to share this newsletter with your team to promote safety culture, and let us know if you would like to talk through any of these tips further.
