SLIP & FALL PROBLEM AREAS AT WORK
Statistically speaking, for most workers there’s a significantly lower chance for a slip and fall accident at work than there is at home. The evidence suggests that employers take a more proactive, methodical approach to preventing slip, trip and fall accidents than the typical person does at home. There are a number of regulatory and statutory rules that mandate certain preventative measures at public and commercial spaces that contributes to a reduction in slip-and-fall accidents, but it’s just as clear that insurance companies and the potential for costly litigation provide incentives that do not necessarily exist in a residential environment. We tackle four work environments where a slip or fall could be very costly both personally and financially.
