DALLAS – In the 50 years since the Bureau of Labor Statistics tracked workplace injuries, the incidence rate has dropped by 75%. This sharp decline is attributed to greater awareness, education and training of employees on how workers can perform their jobs safely.
The two-day event attracted over 100 pest control professionals seeking to learn and share best practices in safety and risk management. Participants participated in several sessions focused on safer fleet management, enhancing safety culture, the enigmatic world of experience modifiers and how to navigate the evolving insurance market.
