How Hotels Can Prevent Slip and Fall Accidents

Imagine going on a vacation all happy and excited only for an accident to ruin everything. Not only all your vacation plans will come to a standstill, you’ll also be dealing with a serious physical injury that may  cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills and impact your future productivity, mobility and bodily functions.

This is why hotel owners need to pay special attention to the safety of their guests who are there; either for a vacation or business. Negligence, even in the smallest degree, can unwittingly send  employees, guests and visitors to the emergency room exposing the business to costly litigation and/or large monetary settlements.

In addition to any civil liability, under Bill C-45, employers may now find themselves criminally negligent for NOT ensuring a safe work and or recreational environment and be subject to incarceration. Slip and fall incidents are one of the biggest reasons behind employees and guests getting injured in Canada and the US.

In Canada,  trips, slips and falls account for approximately 42,000 injuries on an annual basis. Hotel owners need  to implement, upgrade and review their slip-prevention programs, they need to consider what causes a slip and what can be done to reduce or eliminate one of the most common on-site hazards!

What Can Hotel Owners Do?

It’s a fact, most hard surface floors, (whether ceramic, porcelain, quarry tile, granite, marble, travertine, limestone, concrete and other) will become slippery and high risk when they become wet or greasy. The reason being, is when you step in water or oils on non-porous hard mineral surfaces, you’re actually hydroplaning on a film of water or the contaminants.

To prevent this, there are solutions to render wet, greasy and oily floors safe and slip-resistant.

The anti-slip products offered by Les Entreprises Québec Slip Solutions can dramatically increase the slip resistance (coefficient of friction) by permanently modifying the floor’s surface making the floor safer wet than when dry.

We work with hotels and commercial building owners to provide  floor safety solutions  that are non-toxic, odourless and colourless.

Unlike other treatments being offered in the market, our treatment isn’t just a superficial coating that’ll wear off. It’s invisible to the naked eye and undetectable to the touch; which means that the surface is virtually unchanged when dry.

Our goal is to make SAFE TILE the product of choice, for many establishments in every industry segment including residential communities. Our process is simple yet very effective (we clean, we activate, we neutralize); the product solution is applied to the clean floor, is agitated on the surface, and then removed from the area. As soon as the surface dries (within a few hours), it’s ready for normal traffic.
