There are basic rules which must be followed to reduce the risk of slips either at work or in a public place. Failure to follow these rules can lead to liability for an accident and injury to another person. Basic housekeeping rules are vital; keep water and contaminants away from walkways and if they do spill they should be cleaned up immediately. Any employees such as cleaners who are exposed to wet floors should be provided with suitable footwear.
Particular care and attention should be taken during the colder months when rain ice and snow increase the risk of wet floors. If you have had an accident in the workplace and you want to make a claim in London speak to one of the friendly solicitors at Michael Lewin’s.
