Are Your Floors Slip-Resistant?

Slip and fall accidents in public places are by far the leading cause of premises liability injuries. Premises liability is the legal responsibility of a property owner or manager of real property for injuries caused to others or their property due to conditions or activities on the real property.

Think about it, every tile or 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, even private dwellings and bath areas are faced with this potential liability.

 Property owners are required to maintain their property in a "reasonably safe" condition. What is your liability if someone suffers a slip and fall accident on your property?  

 According to OSHA and The American Disabilities Act (ADA) passed by congress in July 1992,Title III notes: For all business open to the public, The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (ATBCB) recommends flooring and walkways have a coefficient of friction level .60 or above and .80 for ramps. There are penalties for failure to comply (up to $50K first offense) and tax benefits for those businesses taking steps to comply.

SureStep can help with all of your floor safety needs no matter what type flooring or situation you have. From bath tubs to office buildings, from restaurant kitchens to pool decks, we can help you eliminate your risk exposure due to a slip and fall injury.

A SURE STEP treatment increases the coefficient of friction when a floor or surface gets wet. The result is that your foot will no longer slip out from under you. This higher coefficient of friction makes it dramatically more slip-resistant — and therefore, safer.

 

 Did you know that slip and fall accidents are the #1 cause of accidental injuries in hotels, restaurants, and public buildings with an average cost of $28,000? (Bureau of Labor Statistics) Floor conditions are by far the leading cause of slip and fall accidents.
