In 2020, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported 805 work-related deaths due to slips, trips, and falls, with an additional 211,640 workers reported as being injured badly enough to require days off of work.
The National Safety Council (NSC) and OSHA lists falls as the second leading cause of unintentional injury-related deaths, after highway crashes.
According to OSHA: slips, trips, and falls are one of the leading causes of workers’ comp claims, accounting for about 15% of work-related fatalities that fall into this category each year.
At B&W Compliance, we have specialists trained to provide walkway audits of your floors in accordance with National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) standards to prevent workplace slips, trips, and falls.
This service provides complete measurements of the traction in your workplace facility by use of specialized equipment to determine the coefficient of friction – a measurement that determines how much friction there is on wet, level floors when walked upon – with complete recommendations provided for creating safer floors and walkways.
Our goal is to ensure preventative measures are taken to avoid any possibility of workers becoming injured by slips and falls on the job. If this service is of interest to you, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our office for more information on how we can help you mitigate slipping hazards in your workplace environment.
