Businesses Take Precautions to Help Seniors Stay On Their Feet

In the average American home, senior citizens are especially vulnerable when it comes to slip-and-fall accidents. Obstacles such as throw rugs, electrical cords, stairs and wet surfaces are among the leading causes of falls that send 1.6 million older Americans to hospitals each year.

Countless lawsuits against businesses are also filed annually due to slip-and-fall incidents that occur on commercial property. With that in mind, many business owners are turning to a product called Sure Step to help eliminate accidental falls and resulting injuries.

When an older customer enters an unfamiliar environment, the odds of a fall will increase. When a wet or slippery floor is added to the equation, the odds of a fall increase dramatically.

“Sure Step is a long-lasting treatment that works on almost any floor surface to improve traction and prevent slipping,” said Stephen DeMarte. Sure Step is now available to business owners and homeowners through DeMarte’s Western New York-based company, Nonslip Safety Solution.

“As we age, our reactions naturally become slower, which leads to many unfortunate cases of slip-and-fall accidents, particularly when walking on a wet floor,” DeMarte added. “That’s what makes Sure Step such a wise investment, especially for businesses that cater to senior citizens. Sure Step can be used indoors or out; will not chip, peel or discolor; is not a film or a coating; and is inexpensive and highly effective. A surface treated with Sure Step is actually safer in wet conditions than a dry, untreated surface!”

Injuries most commonly caused by falls include broken wrists, arms, ankles, hips, and head injuries. To learn more about Sure Step, schedule a free demonstration or to have your floors compliance tested, please contact DeMarte at (716) 560-5594 or nonslipsafetysolution@gmail.com, or sales associate James Beiler at (585) 205-3057 or safety@nonslipsafetysolution.com.
