PROJECT Safety Agencies and Status
To help prevent slips and trips, CCOHS recommends the following:
Slips occur when there isn’t enough friction or traction between a person’s feet and the surface he or she is walking on. Common causes of slips include wet or oily floors, spills, loose or unanchored mats, and flooring that lacks the same degree of traction in all areas, CCOHS states.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that falls can happen in all occupational settings, and “circumstances associated with fall incidents in the work environment frequently involve slippery, cluttered or unstable walking/working surfaces; unprotected edges; floor holes and wall openings; unsafely positioned ladders; and misused fall protection.”
To reduce the risk of falling at work, CCOHS recommends encouraging workers to pay attention to their surroundings and walk at a pace that’s suitable for the surface being walked on and the task being performed.
There are many ways to point direction to a wet floor and the first one is a wet floor sign. To be more particular, the best types of wet floor signs should catch attention very easily. The yellow fellow safety sign is a wet floor sign that’s flashes lights. This is something that will catch the eye of a customer and help the customer know that a wet floor is present.
National Safety Council
"Approximately 25,000 people a day are victims to slip & fall accidents. The expense of these injuries is running $3.5 Million per hour which is over $30 Billion per year"
Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA’s role is to help ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance. For more information, visit www.osha.gov.
OSHA has only been around since 1971. It also is a little shocking that accurate death and accident rates were not kept until 1992. It is estimated that 14,000 workers were killed on the job in 1970. By comparison, in 2014,more workers died "nearly doubled".
Fortunately there is a solution, "an early warning system" that gives advance notice of potentially dangerous and hazardous conditions, especially for the seeing and hearing impaired.
When it comes to falls at the workplace, OSHA’s focused efforts not only will prevent deaths, but also tragic disabilities. These disabilities often come with many large expenditures. Liberty Mutual estimates more than $61 billion per year is spent on disability claims in America .

Wet Floor Safety Statistics
According to statistic published by the National Safety Council (a non-profit, non-governmental, international public service organization dedicated to protecting life and promoting health), slips and falls are a leading cause of unintentional injury in the United States. This is supported by the fact that more than 1 million Americans, most of who are over the age of 60, have sought emergency room treatment for such accidental falls; a growing number of these accidents are occurring in retail stores, hotels, restaurants, supermarkets and office buildings. Wet floor signs are mandatory for any business establishment.
Over the last decade, slip and fall accident rates have more than doubled and this is becoming a major concern to US retailers, for example it has been estimated that one of the major retailers, is sued on average once every two hours, totaling thousands of lawsuits each year – many of these being for slips and falls; one such lawsuit actually cost approximately $545,000.
The escalation in the number of such accidents shows that existing methods of wet floor, accident prevention – portable warning signs that are only erected after someone alerts management – are obviously not adequate.The need therefore exists for a more proactive slip and fall prevention strategy.
There are many ways to point direction to a wet floor and the first one is a wet floor sign. To be more particular, the best types of wet floor signs should catch attention very easily. The Yellow Fellow safety signs will catch the eye of a customer and help the customer know that a wet floor is present.
Adults older than 65 years of age suffer the greatest number of fatal falls. 37.3 million falls that are severe enough to require medical attention occur each year.
