Some of the most serious accidents in the workplace, and in other places involving members of the public as well, are slip and fall accidents. These can be caused by all sorts of things but are often the result of spills of wet substances which have not been cleared up.
They can also be caused by items which have been left on the floor where they should not have been, meaning that people can trip over them, worn carpet, faulty wood floorings – the list goes on and on. Every floor surface is different, even if it is of the same material as the next floor, because each one will be subject to different amounts of wear and tear depending entirely on the amount of foot traffic it gets.
Then you have warehouses where there are forklift trucks operating and which may have all sorts of different products on shelves which can get dropped on the floor. The forklifts themselves can leave rubber on the floor from their tyres.
Other types of flooring can be inherently dangerous. Then there are slips and falls from height: you could be a worker on a scaffold and slip or trip causing a fall which could result in permanent injury or even be fatal. Unfortunately, these things do happen.
