Slip and Fall Facts & Statistics
With So Many Accidents...
The Department of Labor and the National Safety Council have provided us with the following facts:
- Slip and fall accidents are the second leading cause of accidental deaths; automobile accidents are number one.
- Slip and falls are the number one cause of accidental injuries in hotels, restaurants and public buildings.
- More than 9 million slip and fall accidents occur in North America every year.
- About 25,000 people a day are hospitalized as a result of these accidents.
A No-Slip Business Decision
On a rainy day, the entrance way of every store and office building becomes a danger zone - for customers and staff. Every marble floor that's just been mopped, every kitchen in every restaurant or school cafeteria, every bathtub in every hotel, every washroom floor with a few drops of water - all these places and more are legal battlefields. Every commercial property or public building - and even private dwellings and bath areas - are faced with this potential liability.
