Five years of working with OSHA and NIOSH to shine a light on reducing slips, trips and falls has resulted in a vast reduction in the severity of fall mishaps across the Air Force.

The survey is available 24/7 worldwide with a Controlled Access Card on the Occupational Safety SharePoint site or simply send an email describing personal experiences to SEGT.AFSC@us.af.mil.
