These incidents have the ability to cause serious injuries for those who are involved, and while you may believe that these incidents could never happen to you or someone you love, reality is a different story. The reality slip and fall accidents is that they can happen at any time, and to anyone. That’s why it is so important for you to know these top prevention tips to keep you and your loved ones truly safe from harm.
- Think before you select a pair of shoes to wear. Consider where you are going when making a shoe choice. If you will be going somewhere with slippery floors, like the grocery store, consider shoes with rubber soles that will grip the floor and help you stay more stable, even if you must walk quickly, or the floors are wet for some reason.
- Dress for the activity that you are going to participate in. Nothing is more dangerous than trying to participate in an activity that you are not prepared for. If you will be engaging in sports or some other physical activity, go out in footwear that is appropriate for the activity. Inappropriate footwear can contribute to slip and fall accidents more than you realize.
- Do not take your safety for granted. While you cannot be held accountable for someone else’s error—for example, a grocery store leaving a spill in an aisle for several hours rather than cleaning it up—it is important that you take your safety into your own hands. By watching out for spills, debris, and tripping hazards, you can keep yourself on your feet no matter where you go and no matter what you do.
- Think safety all the time. Slip and fall hazards are everywhere in this world. And you may have been lucky enough to avoid them most of the time, or throughout your entire life so far. But this doesn’t mean that you will always be safe or that you can always avoid being involved in an accident. When you think about your safety and always have it at the front of your mind, as a general habit, you will be able to notice hazards without thinking about it, and evade them without worry or a significant amount of forethought.
