Comprised of more than ten years of researching various test methods by which walkway materials, coatings, chemical cleaning agents and treatments can be evaluated for their degree of slip resistance, the NFSI
has a comprehensive evaluation process.
According to NFSI
officials, walking surfaces are most likely to be identified as the primary cause of a slip, trip-and-fall accident and comprise 55% of all falls.
Slips-and-falls are the leading cause of accidental death for people over the age of 75 and are estimated to cost society more than $60 billion annually, NFSI
committed to acquire up to $4 million of the bond issuance in a subordinated position to the remaining Fannie Mae enhanced bonds in the event the project failed to meet its anticipated stabilized net operating income.
According to NFSI
research, 50 percent of workplace slips and falls are caused by lack of traction on floors and other walking surfaces.
I look forward to working with the NFSI
Board to create standards and programs that will help protect foodservice operators, employees and patrons from the dangers of slips, trips and falls.

and now ICAN, Tennant Company is clearly revolutionizing the commercial floor care industry.
