Minute by Minute

Ten minutes is just a fraction of a typical busy day. It goes by so fast, you may not even think about it. What can you do in 10 minutes?

  • Present a project update at meeting
  • Start a load of laundry
  • Walk your dog
  • Wait in line for coffee during the morning rush

  • 847 people to suffer an injury severe enough to require doctor or medical professional
  • $18.42 million in costs

The video below illustrates the extent and impact of these deaths and injuries – each one completely preventable – minute by minute:
