I am NOT A Power Washing Company… I am A Health & Safety Company. We clean concrete to reduce slip and fall risks, we clean buildings to promote better air quality, we clean roofs to save shingles, kill mold and reduce air conditioning costs, and we use F9 Efflo to increase traction on outside surfaces with slippery hard water stains and F9 Barc to rid homeowner’s driveways of Hazardous Substances such as battery acid stains. Of course, a byproduct of this cleaning is that things look better too!

What is the most beneficial thing we do as power washing companies? Help REDUCE THE INCIDENCE OF SLIP AND FALLS AND INCREASE COF (COEFFIEICNET OF FRICTION).

When someone slips or trips and falls at a person’s home, outside a store, or on a sidewalk, one of the most common questions is: “Who’s responsible”?

Premises liability is the legal responsibility that property owners have for injuries that occur on their property due to slip and fall accidents. If a person slips, trips, or falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition – such as a slippery concrete – the property owner may be fully responsible.  In general, property owners are held accountable for falls that result from ice, snow, and other slippery conditions on their property such as calcium stains, mold accumulation, etc. The measure of how slipper a surface is, is called Coefficient of Friction (COF).

Other dangerous conditions include sand accumulation, oils, grease, soda or other build ups that create a slippery layer on the concrete.

There are five major causes for slip-and-fall accidents:

  1. Lack of slip resistance on walking surfaces
  2. Poor walking surface conditions 
  3. Poor visibility 
  4. Poor condition of handrails and guardrails
  5. Poor accessibility 

 

WHAT IS SLIP RESISTANCE?

Slip resistance is generally measured by defining the coefficient of friction (COF) between two surfaces. An example is the relationship between a shoe and a floor surface.

There are two COF measures:

*Static – The force necessary to start a body moving

*Dynamic – The force necessary to keep this same body moving

In the U.S.,the static COF is the customer method of measuring slip resistance. The COF is generally measured between 1.0 for very rough surfaces (e.g., sand paper) and extremely slippery surfaces at 0.0 (e.g., water on ice). The American National Standards Institutes’ (ANSI) A 1264-2-2001 “Standard for the Provision of Slip Resistance on Walking & Working Surfaces” suggests a Static COF of approximately .05 for walking surfaces under dry conditions.

DID YOU KNOW?

*For every $1.00 spent on Floor Care, Supermarkets spend $3 for Slip & Fall claims

*Among seniors, slips and falls are #1 cause of accidental deaths. Every 18 seconds a senior citizen is admitted to hospital from a slip and fall injury.

*Slips and Falls kill more workers than all other combined forms of workplace accidents.

*Compensation and Medical cost from employee Slips & Falls total approximately $70 Billion yearly.

*One of the three serious bone breaks for seniors result in death within one year of the accident.

*Most major companies allocate $50,000 anytime there is a slip and fall on their premises so as to deal with the issue.

*According to OSHA and The American Disabilities Act:  Passed by congress in July, 1992. Tittle III notes: For all business open to the public, flooring and walkways should have a friction coefficient of .60 or above and ramps should have a friction coefficient of .80 or above. There are penalties for failure to comply (up to $50k first offense) and tax benefits for businesses that take steps to comply.
