Slip and Fall Accident Statistics

7 Feb

The “slip, trip, and fall” experts at the National Floor Safety Institute are on a mission. That mission is to aid in the prevention of slips, trips, and falls through education, research, and the development of safety standards that prevent the occurrence of accidents. According to the organization, the average slip and fall accident may cause temporary– or sometimes permanent– disabling effects that cost about $250,000 or more. This is particularly alarming for businesses, as such accidents not only mean the harm or loss of an employee, but also inordinate expenses. When the accident is the result of negligence, businesses may be required by law to compensate workers for lost wages, medical bills, and more. By better understanding why accidents occur, businesses can proactively seek to prevent them. To that end, the Eagle Mat Blog presents this guide to common Slip and Fall Statistics.
