Slip and Fall Injury
The most serious consequence that often is a result of someone falling are fractures, which happen to 5% of those who fall. While these incidents are not a primary cause of deaths, they are in fact a primary reason for missed days of work. The Consumer Product Safety Commission claims that floors and flooring materials are related to more than 2 million falling accidents every year.
For people, ages 55 and older, slipping and falling are the number one cause for workers’ compensation claims as well as the cause of workplace injury. 22% of these types of accidents ended up forcing employees to take more than 31 days off of work, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
