Slippery When Wet: How to Prevent Slip and Fall Injuries

It’s fall, and we don’t want to. Fall, that is. As we slide into winter, the hazards spread. But slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere, in any season, and the danger is very real: a puddle of chicken grease cost a Costco customer her life at age 39.

Americans spend $50 billion annually on health care to treat slip, trip and fall injuries. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, of the close to one million lost work days due to injuries, more than a fourth were caused by slips, trips and falls. And, reminds the National Safety Council, falls can happen anywhere — even at a “desk job.”

This is why Spill Hero exists: to vanquish those dangerous spills with spill clean up and spill containment solutions that return your floors to clean, dry, safe walkways in just minutes.
