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.
Mr S made a claim for compensation after he slipped on some oil that was on the walkway he was using at work. The accident was not Mr S’s fault and as no one had made an effort to clean the mess up or put out warning signs Mr S was entitled to make a compensation claim.
