Slip & Fall Risk Increases For Retail

Slip and fall accidents are among the most common injuries in the winter months, and they cause a considerable financial burden on retail businesses.

Foot traffic for retailers in 2020 dropped an average of 40% due to COVID-19; however, the risk for a slip & fall on a retail property rose.

Many factors are play when it comes to the increased risk of slip & falls for businesses; less income, the introduction of “curbside pickup,” and cuts to maintenance budgets, including winter services such as snow removal & ice management. Creating a perfect storm of liability, leading to a $50,000 slip & fall claim, which could be a devastating blow to a business in this pandemic.

Precautions can be taken to minimize slip & fall hazards, along with adding additional risk in these unprecedented times. This is where Snow Queen, a leader in winter management, help.
