What Fall Prevention Tips Are There?

According to data available from the National Floor Safety Institute, more than one million people each year are injured and seek treatment in emergency rooms due to slip and fall accidents. The vast majority of these slip and fall accidents can be prevented. Many of these incidents occur in a person’s home, but others happen on public government property or at private businesses. Property owners and operators have a duty to ensure the safety of their guests, and they can take steps to prevent slip and fall incidents by:

  • Promptly cleaning up any known leaks or spills
  • Using “wet floor” signs after mopping or cleaning spills
  • Ensuring there is no loose flooring material on the premises
  • Ensuring that there are no uneven walkways
  • Removing any low-lying tripping hazards
  • Ensuring all premises areas have proper lighting
  • Properly maintaining parking lots

Of course, some of the responsibility for preventing slip and fall accidents lies with the patrons. It is important then everybody is aware of their surroundings. One of the most common distractions is cell phones. When a person has their eyes glued to a phone, they are less likely to see any potential slip and fall hazards that could cause them harm including spinal cord injuries, broken bones, cuts and lacerations and more.

Anybody who sustains a slip and fall personal injury needs to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Not only will this ensure the victim’s well-being, but this will also establish a link between the incident and the injuries in question.
