It’s true! More than 3 million food service employees and over 1 million guests are injured annually as a result of restaurant slips and falls. Food, water, ice, snow, dirt, sand, and more, can prove to be recipes for disaster. Many of these injuries are serious, including broken bones, head injuries, twisted ankles and knees, muscle strains and cuts. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, the hospitality industry spends over $2 billion on such injuries each year and these injuries are increasing at a rate of about 10% annually.
