Service Helps Minimize Falls, the Second Leading Cause of Accidental Death
LYNN, Mass., Jan. 14 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — NevaSlip, a trusted and established anti-slip floor treatment company, is proud to announce OSHA, ADA and major insurance carrier compliance. The service aims to minimize falling, which is the second leading cause of accidental death in 1996 according to the National Safety Council.
“We have received an increasing number of service requests over the past year resulting from insurance pressures for enhanced safety precautions. Our most common requests involve locker rooms, kitchens, lobbies, high-traffic entryways, patios and pool decks,” explained Stan Handman, Founder of NevaSlip Anti-Slip Floor Service. “When budgets are tight across the board, preventative strategies safeguard businesses from the threat of insurance cancellation, costly litigation and medical liability.”
Data provided by the National Safety Council illustrates the importance of preventing falls, with a reported 9,023 fall-related fatal injuries of adults over the age of 65 and 87 of children under the age of nine in 2007 alone. The organization also cites falls solely responsible for more open wounds, fractures and brain injuries than any other cause of injury.
NevaSlip treatment involves a microscopic invisible tread etching within the floor’s surface, with minimal to no gloss reduction or color change. This tread, applied by factory-trained technicians, works to help prevent the sole of a shoe or foot from slipping and sliding. NevaSlip is designed to work on ceramic, porcelain or quarry tiles, marble, granite, terrazzo, limestone, slate and concrete. The company serves builders, architects, interior designers and leading businesses nationwide.
