Avoid Slips and Falls at Your Workplace in {cities_primary}

Slips and falls are the second leading causes of loss for business in {states_primary}. And they can be prevented with a few maintenance and cleaning procedures. Most slips and falls are caused by the floor surface being too slippery from either moisture or from lack of friction due to built up debris on the surface. {agency_name_long} wants you, your employees and customers to be safe at your business – so keep these helpful tips in mind:

Check Your Floor Friction

  • Clean floors are safe floors
    Most falls are caused by slipperiness related to dirt, grease or debris on the floors or by using inappropriate cleaning solutions that make the floor slippery – that’s why {agency_name_short} encourages you to train your employees on the proper way to clean and maintain floor surfaces. You can learn more and get employee training materials on this safety topic when you contact {agency_name_long}.
  • Oh, those darn shoes!
    Just as the friction resistance of the floor surface plays a role in slips and falls, so too does the tread and condition of footwear. You can remind your employees to have appropriate shoes for the surfaces at your workplace, but we know you can’t control what shoes most people wear so it’s still best to focus your attention on the condition and maintenance of the floor.
  • Make sure you are protected by your policy
    Make sure your property and liability exposures are covered. {agency_name_short} can make sure your business’s coverage is up-to-date and appropriate for your industry.
