Tips to Avoid Personal Injuries at Home and at Work

As the owner of a business, or even at your own home, one of the last things you want is a phone call from a personal injury attorney in Springfield, IL, notifying you that you are being sued for an accident someone experienced on your property or at your business. Here are some precautionary measures you should take at your home and at your office to keep yourself and your visitors safe.

Keep Walkways and Stairways Clear

It is important to keep walkways clear, especially considering the fact that 20% of workplace accidents result on level surfaces ( ). When you think about slip and fall accidents, you probably think of icy sidewalks and parking lots, but the truth is that many accidents occur just from stuff being left out on the floor.

Having things left out on stairways can be even more dangerous because of the extra hazard of falling down the stairs and sustaining injuries on more parts of your body. Always make sure that the stairways are clear at home and at work.

Keep the Floors as Dry as Possible

Having items left out on the floor or on the stairs can be dangerous, but when you allow the surface to be wet with a spill, the danger is exponentially greater. Remember that a spill does not have to be something that you accidentally let spill off the table or off a workspace. People walk indoors with wet shoes all the time. Check areas around exterior doors, since people might have tracked in water from the rain or snow. Especially in a work place that has one main entrance, people walking in with wet shoes and clothes can make the floors extremely wet.

Make sure to keep the floors in your home and your office building as dry as possible. For high traffic areas, consider using rugs with mats underneath them to keep them from slipping. These allow people to wipe off their shoes and avoid stepping and slipping on floors that are already wet and dangerous.

Repair Any Safety Hazards Immediately

Be aware of any safety hazards in your home or business such as loose handrails, floor problems such as uneven floorboards, or damaged treads. Do not wait for someone to injure him or herself before you take care of these problems. You need to be aware of the issues and take care of them so that you can prevent an injury, a potential lawsuit, and all the other ramifications that go along with accidents.

Make Your Home and Office a Walk-Only Zone

In today’s fast-paced world, it seems like the most productive and efficient people are always on the go. There is a lot of value in slowing down a bit, one of the significant values being that it will keep you much safer. Encourage people to slow down and walk. If people are running around, it is harder for them to be safe, much less aware, of potential dangers such as tripping hazards and other objects that they can run into.

Be Careful What You Carry

Make sure when you are carrying a load that you know your limits. Also, be careful to avoid carrying anything that you cannot see over, especially if you are carrying things down the stairs. Whether you are at home or at work, use tools to help you move things that are too heavy or too tall to see over.

Avoiding personal injury at your home and at your workplace involves keeping these essential tips in mind. Make sure that you know all the precautionary measures you should take to avoid facing liability. A personal injury attorney in Springfield, IL , may be able to help you identify some other safety issues in your home and your facility to keep guests and visitors safe.
