Wet or damp floors are not the only cause of slip, trip and fall accidents within the facility. Clutter, footwear and improper cleaning can also cause hazards for both employees and building occupants alike. In fact, according to reports, 50% of facility accidents can actually be attributed to the type of flooring used. Regardless of the cause, these accidents can cost facilities big bucks in unemployment and liability claims.
Slips, trips and falls make up the majority of general industry accidents. According to the U.S. Department of Labour’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), slips, trips and falls account for 15% of all accidental deaths, and are second only to motor vehicles as a cause of fatalities.

Why do we focus on anti-slip flooring and non-slip coatings?
At present, Slips, Trips & Falls are not unique to any country or economic climate. The fact of the matter is that the problem of slippery floors exists everywhere.
The Occupational Health and Safety act makes provision for standards, employers and self-employed persons have to adhere to these standards to prevent damage to their business, in sections of this act it clearly states that “every employer shall provide & maintain, as far as reasonably practicable, a working environment that is safe and without risk to the health of his employees.”
If this was properly adhered to, there would be no Slip & Fall accidents reported and the simple fact is that it is not adhered to.
To give you an idea of how this applies to the market we can share some statistics with you:
• 57% of all accidents within the hotel & catering industry are caused by Slips & Falls (C.N.A Insurance)
• Slips and falls are the number 1 cause of personal injury accidents in public areas. 70% of these occur on flat surfaces.
