Every month, over 10,000 searches are requested for legal issues surrounding slips and falls. It constitutes the majority of general industry accidents. It causes 15% of all accidental deaths and is second only to motor vehicles as a cause of fatality. Each year, 33,000 people receive disabling injuries and approximately 12,000 people die from falling on slippery floors and stairs. These deaths are second only to motor vehicle accidents in causing personal injury. The static co-efficient of friction (C.O.F.) for most High Volume Traffic areas should be a minimum of 0.5, and this minimum value is not being met.

“In Canada, some sixty thousand workers are injured annually due to fall accidents”. This number represents about fifteen percent of the “time-loss injuries” that were accepted by Workers Compensation boards or commissions across Canada. Not mentioning a great economical loss, it amounts for a lot of pain and suffering and sometimes (much too often) even death. “All these, in most cases, do not have to happen” as reported by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health & Safety.
