COST

Costs of Slippery Surfaces

Claims for slip & falls, have unlimited Liability Risks unlike a finger getting severed, or something like that, these liabilities have set dollar amounts. Where as with a slip & fall the suit could be for any amount.
 
The average medical & indemnity cost per slip/fall claim in 2011 was $43,035(National Safety Council) as shown below. The average liability law suit cost; is $50,000. to Defend, and just over $100,000.in Judgments, (OSHA). Slip and falls amount for over 1M emergency room visits each year.

The total cost burden to businesses for workplace injuries and illnesses was nearly $60 billion in 2014, according to the Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index. Slips and trips (without fall) and falls (same level) accounted for over $11 billion of that total, or almost 20 percent. 

Adding to this cost is the fact an employee suffering from a slip, trip or fall incident misses an average of 38 work-days, costing millions of dollars to organizations in lost productivity while also driving up insurance costs. 

Considering the average cost for a slip, trip or fall injury is $20,000, while the cost to defend a slip or fall claim is $50,000, it makes sense companies need to ensure they have appropriate safety in place to address and prevent these injuries.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

What is the treatment?


The treatment is a chemical process. The chemicals interact with the minerals in the surface of tile/stone/concrete floor. It is NOT acid etching. Acid etching strips minerals, which can damage the floor. We settle the soft minerals, exposing the hard minerals in the stone. This increases the coefficient of friction.




Is this a film or some kind of coating?


No. It is a chemical treatment. We do provide acrylic based coating option for plastic and fibreglass molded bathtubs.




How frequently do I have to get treatment done?


Floor treatment carry 12 months of warranty. Bathtubs carry 12 months of warranty. We provide additonal warranty for residential customers, and for commercial customers the same can be bought at the time of treatment.




How much does the treatment cost?


The treatment is affordable, the cost will be pennies on dollar compared to dealing with the stress of a lawsuit. For pricing contact our sales office at sales@safety-firstus.com or call us at (770) 336-6525.




Is there any down time?


No, there is no downtime other than our team working on floor to apply treatment. There is a 24 hour downtime if you need acrylic based coating for your plastic or fibreglass bathtub.




How much improvement can I expect from the treatment?


You can expect increase on coefficient of friction by 200 - 400% when subjected to water. this depensds upon the quality of tiles, and the ratio of minerals and filler material in the composition of tile. the testing was performed by National Testing Standards, Inc California. The testing was performed in accordance with A.S.T.M. procedures.
