Restaurant Owners Turn to Sure Step to Keep Employees on Their Feet

Restaurant Owners Turn to Sure Step to Keep Employees on Their Feet

As you might imagine, the kitchen at your favorite local restaurant is a very busy, fast-paced environment. In addition to all the food preparation and cooking taking place behind the scenes, there’s a tremendous amount of foot traffic — everyone from chefs to dishwashers and house managers to the waitstaff.

Needless to say, on any given day a restaurant kitchen floor also sees its share of spills and splashes. Food, beverages, water and even cooking oil can end up underneath the feet of restaurant employees at any point in time, increasing the likelihood of slips, falls and injuries to staff.

As a result, slips, trips and falls due to wet and slippery conditions are among the greatest kitchen concerns. For restaurant owners, it’s an ongoing battle to keep workers healthy and safe.

Businesses Take Precautions to Help Seniors Stay On Their Feet

Businesses Take Precautions to Help Seniors Stay On Their Feet

In the average American home, senior citizens are especially vulnerable when it comes to slip-and-fall accidents. Obstacles such as throw rugs, electrical cords, stairs and wet surfaces are among the leading causes of falls that send 1.6 million older Americans to hospitals each year.

Countless lawsuits against businesses are also filed annually due to slip-and-fall incidents that occur on commercial property. With that in mind, many business owners are turning to a product called Sure Step to help eliminate accidental falls and resulting injuries.

When an older customer enters an unfamiliar environment, the odds of a fall will increase. When a wet or slippery floor is added to the equation, the odds of a fall increase dramatically.
