Fireman's Fund Insurance Company estimates roughly 44% of incurred claims costs for office properties are the result of exterior slips, trips, and falls, including these five examples.
There are many situations that may cause slips, trips, and falls, such as ice, wet spots, grease, polished floors, loose flooring or carpeting, uneven walking surfaces, clutter, electrical cords, open desk drawers and filing cabinets.
Next, Travelers said that slips, trips, and falls are more prevalent at golf courses because of the rolling terrain, water hazards, and various pathways and walkways.
"There are many causes of slips, trips, and falls in commercial buildings," says Daniel Wagner, director of facility service programs for ISSA-Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association, "including floors, improper footwear, failure to provide a necessary hazard warning, and lack of training."
While your building's flooring may not always be at fault, the National Floor Safety Institute (NSFI) says that more than 50 percent of all slips, trips, and falls are caused by flooring issues.
The National Floor Safety Institute cites shoes or footwear as being the second leading cause of slips, trips, and falls, causing nearly one-quarter of these accidents.
Slips, trips, and falls by patrons and others are the most prevalent claims experienced by full-service restaurants, according to Restaurant Insurance Corp., of Greenwood Village, Colo.
