There’s no doubt that you’ve slipped and fallen before, whether at work, at home, at the pool, or on an icy sidewalk. In many cases, slips and falls can be harmless—resulting in little more than bruising or embarrassment. In other cases, however, fall injuries that result from slips and trips can result in visits to the emergency room, broken bones, and even tragic disabilities.
In fact, half of all accidental deaths caused in the home are due to falls, and slips and falls result in the number one cause of lost days from work.
Owners of a larger corporation or a small business must understand that the risk of injuries due to slips and falls can hold even greater value in a work environment. While injuries result in a great deal of personal suffering for those who slipped and fell, it is also important to consider the company losses which can result.
Lawsuits, days lost from work, and possibly a negative reputation may await companies with devastating slip and fall accidents.
