Restaurant Non-Slip Floor Treatment
More than 3 million food service employees and over 1 million guests are injured annually as a result of restaurant slips and falls. The industry spends over $2 billion on such injuries each year, and these injuries are increasing at a rate of about 10% annually.
According to the National Restaurant Association, slips and falls are the greatest sources of general liability insurance claims within the restaurant industry.
THE FOLLOWING RECOMMENDATIONS CAN HELP LOWER THE RISKS FOR SLIP-AND-FALL INCIDENTS:
- High-traction, slip-resistant flooring materials with proven high traction characteristics are one of the best ways to avoid slip-and-fall issues.
- Have the flooring coefficient of friction (COF) audited after treatment to confirm slip resistance.
