A FLOOR safety expert, Mr. Tomasz Wolski has said that floor safety should be of paramount importance to facility managers, property owners and every Nigerian.
Making this known at the just concluded three-day training programme in Lagos organized by No-slips Limited, the Nigerian representative and service provider for Surestep, a non-slip floor treatment solution in Nigeria, Tomasz, a citizen of Poland and a certified global Surestep trainer and safety professional, stated that the importance of floor treatment cannot be overemphasized as slip and fall accidents are a common occurrence at work places, event centres, homes and other high traffic facilities adding that, the effect of a slip and fall accident can be fatal.
According to him, “Floor safety is important because we walk on floors every day. Safety and health are the two most important aspects of human well being so why won’t we care about it. Very often people forget about floor safety but I think that our floors should never be unsafe.”
Also speaking during the training exercise, the Chief Executive Officer CEO, of No-Slips Limited, Mr. Charles Igbinidu said, people don’t take floor safety serious because much attention is not drawn to slip and fall accidents in Nigeria.
“People need to start taking floor safety very seriously. All over the world, people are constantly experiencing slip and fall accidents and every one of us can testify to that because, at some point in our lives we have experienced it. Many people sustain permanent injuries and sometimes victims may die”, Igbinidu said.
