Preventing Slips And Falls At Your Business

Stopping slips and falls before they occur can help to keep your business and employees safe.

A slip and fall may not seem like that big of a deal. However, did you know that slip and fall claims are some of the most common and expensive claims that companies make? Knowing how to protect your company can help to keep your employees and clients safe while also helping you save on your commercial insurance.

Keep these business liability tips in mind to prevent a slip and fall at your business.

Inspection and clean-up

Create a program to regularly inspect your premises so any hazards can be fixed as soon as possible. The sooner you are able to find any issues on your property, the sooner it can be handled to keep all visitors to your business safe and sound.

Surveillance system

A well-working surveillance system can help you properly preserve all facts about any incidents that occur. A video of all accidents can also be the evidence a jury needs if the claim is taken to court.

Caution cones

Any hazardous situations should always be marked with a safety cone. Setting up a cone will alert all employees and clients to the issue. It also helps to demonstrate that you have taken all “reasonable” safety standards are met.


All incidents should be thoroughly documented and reported. Do not try to memorize all the information about the incident, because you will be much more likely to forget vital facts. Get the names and contact information of all witnesses, and take pictures of the scene as soon as you can.

Having the right business liability insurance can help to ensure that you have the right amount of coverage in case of any incidents. For all of your Texas business insurance needs, contact the independent insurance professionals at VGW Walker Insurance.
