Published on

In this short, easy to read treatise on slip and fall accidents and how you can avoid many of them, especially if wet or slippery floors are involved, we point out some interesting facts about anti-slip tape.

Any business owner will tell you, slips and falls are no laughing matter. Slips, trips, and falls account for 15% of all accidental deaths, around 25 percent of all reported injury claims per fiscal year, and another 65 percent of all work days lost in general industry fields, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

As is the case with most accidents, slips and falls are also preventable to a great degree. Reducing accidents and incidents with anti-slip floor tape is not only a great way to lower those pesky issues in your workplace, but it is also extremely affordable and makes your corporate bean counters very happy.

Take a few moments to read the tips and see if there is a way you can make your business safer using them.
