If a slipping accident occurs at work it is essential that you investigate the accident. This will provide valuable defence in any subsequent legal proceedings. The company that performs the test must have the capabilities to test the slip resistance of the flooring and prove that the flooring is safe. Slip accidents make up the majority of work-related accident types. Early inspection of the floor can prevent slips. If a slip does occur, it is worthwhile investigating in a professional manner. Even if you think everything is fine, a preliminary professional examination can protect you.
Causes of Slip / Fall Accident
Accidents can be caused by many reasons. They can happen in offices, in public buildings, in a mall, in a supermarket. As a result of wet flooring, negligence at work, ice on the flooring and more. Slipping is both common and dangerous and can result in anything from a minor injury to death. The damage to the property owner can be very large.
