Commercial Nonslip Flooring

The slip and fall. Business owners, municipalities, and property owners everywhere know the significance of this problem. They know that sooner or later they will have an encounter with a slip and fall accident — and the resulting injury and lawsuit that follows. Diligence on their part can reduce the number of slip and fall accidents, and they want to be seen as doing everything they can to reduce them. At Volunteer Non-slip Services, Inc., our floor safety protocol can significantly reduce damage awards in slip and fall lawsuits because it can be cited in court as proof of due diligence on behalf of your customer. Retailers can measure the slip risk of their floors and take preventative action before a slip-and-fall event occurs, and results have already proven to be successful.


With the publication of these new nationally recognized industry standards for minimum traction thresholds, retailers can now be held liable for the safety of their walkways. The auditing and testing services we provide with our robotic walkway tribometers now make it simple, fast, and affordable to determine the compliance of your floors in advance of one of these events. 

"The property owner's choice to comply or not to comply will certainly play a bigger role in the outcome of a slip and fall lawsuit. Companies that are seen by the court as being in compliance will find their legal defenses bolstered, while those who don't may be seen as negligent and are at greater risk of losing their cases." — Russell J. Kendzior, founder of the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI)
