NSC stated, “In homes and communities, more than 31,000 people died in a fall in 2014. In the workplace, nearly 600 people died and 47,000 were injured in 2013.” Many of these slips, trips, or falls result from inadequately maintained property and issues such as:

  • Clutter & Obstacles: Typically clutter and obstacles occur when objects are left lying around, chords are not properly secured, rugs or mats don’t have a non-slip pad, or debris is covering part of an outdoor walkway.
