Slips and Falls Are Costing You Money


Unnecessary slips and falls cost businesses more than

$70 billion each year. Not only through lawsuits and judgments, but lost customers as well.


Lawsuits related to slip and fall accidents have risen by more than 300% since 1980 according to OSHA. The National Safety Council claims that slips and falls are responsible for more than 60,000 general industry accidents every year. That is an astronomical statistic.


Andy McBrayer, Global Account Manager of Facilities will present important strategies and programs that you can implement immediately to deliver increased sales and cost reductions.
