Move boxes off the floor to prevent tripping. Clean up spills immediately. Call Melissa Knight for help moving heavy things.

Encourage employees to take occasional breaks, switch between tasks, use aides like wrist pads, and to spend time doing hand/wrist exercises to help prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Seek assistance if a client becomes hostile or abusive. Take precaution in inclement weather, clear debris, and clean up standing water or ice. Keep your employees health and wellness in mind.
