What We Do | Stop Slip Solutions
Stop Slip Solutions offers safety, peace of mind and decreased liability to residents, property owners and businesses in Sarasota, Venice, and Bradenton. Slip and fall accidents are one of the leading causes of serious injury in the home and workplace. Slippery floors, bathtubs and showers, kitchens and other wet flooring surfaces such as pool decks and sidewalks can be extremely dangerous and a high-risk liability.
Every year over 155,000 slip and fall injuries are reported resulting in 3,500 fatal injuries and accounting for one-half of all accidental deaths in the home. Slip and fall injuries are the leading cause of missed work, worker’s comp claims, and traumatic brain injuries.
Instead of just placing a sign warning of a possible hazard or putting down mats (which can be a tripping hazard on their own) we offer a long-term solution that increases the coefficient of friction giving you more traction and stability. After all, you can not always predict a spill or get to it in time to prevent a fall.
Many floors are slick and dangerous even when dry, especially to the elderly or physically impaired. Floors treated by Stop Slip offer higher traction allowing those with balance issues greater safety and mobility. Polished floor surfaces and leather soled shoes and high heels also make another dangerous combination that could be eliminated in office buildings by our treatment.
In the kitchen, especially commercial kitchens, there is increased risk due to the mix of liquids and oils. Floors treated with our process offer 200-400% higher coefficient of friction even under wet oily conditions. As a restaurant owner, the investment is well worth it when it comes to the safety of the staff. The average cost of a slip and fall workman’s comp claim is over $40,000. This doesn’t take into consideration hiring and training a new employee or legal fees that may be incurred.
Pool decks, office hallways, and lobbies, stairs and sidewalks are all also potential lawsuits. With over 95,000 lawyers in the State of Florida, it is well worth protecting yourself by creating the safest environment possible. We offer free estimates and will gladly assess your situation to see if you would benefit from our service.
