Preventing Slips & Falls

Most of us have been in the situation where we become distracted or trip and down we go hitting the pit of embarrassment we soak in until we get back up from a fall. Not only can a fall hurt your pride, but you can also be stuck remembering the moment again and again as an injury heals. There are a few simple steps that can help keep you on your feet.

Think housekeeping, flooring, and footwear. Spills should be cleaned up promptly, clutter in walkways needs to be cleared, ensure lighting is good, and secure rugs and cords. Installing non-slippery flooring, as the name implies, prevents slips and falls. Dirty, greasy, poor fitting shoes, untied laces, and shoes that provide poor stability can also send you to the ground.

These tips all hold true to your Nonprofit Organization as well.  If you have visitors at your organization, make sure all walkways are free of clutter & spills.  Falls are one of the top types of incidents that can lead to injury and lawsuits.  Protect yourself and your Nonprofit Organization today.
