With Santa’s crew preparing for the big night ahead, it’s essential to take all necessary precautions to ensure a safe and non-hazardous journey. Although the North Pole might be one of the safest workplaces in the world, the attorneys at Daggett Shuler thought we’d help out Santa’s Health & Safety team by putting together a list of the most hazardous situations that Santa and his staff may encounter this season.

Who’s at Risk?

While it’s true that some occupations carry greater risk for workplace hazard concerns than others, the truth is that virtually anyone who has a job, including St. Nick himself, can get injured at work. The leading cause of workplace injuries is the failure to identify hazards that are present or could have been anticipated. Having a consistent, proactive process to identify and assess such risks is essential to any adequate safety and health program.
