Call us and learn how you can create safe footing at your workplace to help reduce costly slip and fall hazards. While slippery floors are an everyday occurrence in many workplaces, they are commonly overlooked as a safety hazard. According to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), slips and falls resulting from unsafe flooring are very common. Statistics show that more than 30% of all occupational injuries result from slips, trips and falls. And, more than 70% of falls occurred on flat surfaces like plant floors.
Manufacturers are at particular risk Manufacturing facilities are at particular risk for slip-and-fall accidents, as many processes require liquids for cooling, cleaning, lubricating, etc. These liquids typically leak, drip or spray onto workplace floors and walkways where workers can easily slip and fall. Clean, dry floors are the key to reducing and eliminating these kinds of accidents. Don't become another statistic.
