Preventing slip-and-fall accidents and claims in busy public buildings
Don’t let an accident like this happen in your business – no one wants a colleague, friend or family member getting seriously hurt. And slips are more serious than you probably expected...
The good news is, though: slips are not inevitable. You can stop slip accidents, you can prevent injuries, you can avoid and defend claims
Why is it important to focus on slip safety?
⚠️ Slips are the most common cause of accident, injury & claim. An average claim is £10k but the true cost of an accident is £100k+
⚠️ There have been £700k+ criminal fines after serious slip incidents (fines are *not* insurable)
⚠️ Insurance premiums are rising; given slips are 33%+ of claims, managing this risk is a way to prevent your insurance cost skyrocketing
How can we help you make your building safer?
✅ Our process reduces slip accidents by at least 50%+ in clients’ buildings
✅ We often improve a floor from a 1 in 20 to a 1 in 1,000,000 accident risk exposure through an anti-slip floor treatment. Yes, that’s a 500,000X reduction in risk!
✅ We also gather Pendulum Slip Test data which helps to defend more claims
✅ Added bonus: we deep clean the floors you thought were uncleanable
