FAQ – MOST VULNERABLE \”SLIP & FALL\” AREAS

What are the most vulnerable areas of a facility for “slip and fall?”

Crown Mats and Matting has released its second segment in a series of Tribology Training classes, detailing how to handle high risk areas for slip and fall accidents.

According to JoAnne Boston, business development manager for Crown Mats, this class focuses on how facility managers can help prevent slip and fall accidents by knowing where they are most likely to occur.

Boston says studies now indicate these areas are where a slip and fall accident is most likely to occur:

  • Any floor surfaces that are wet or oily (both indoors and outdoors)
  • Sloping surfaces, especially sloping down
  • Work areas where pushing, pulling, carrying, or lifting tasks are performed
  • Any area of a facility where people must temporarily walk faster than usual
  • Where there are frequent walkway changes
  • Unfamiliar or hard to see locations or walkways
  • Areas where carpeting is torn or floor tiles are broken or loose
  • Accident locations that have not been secured or cleaned up.
