In an article published by the LA Times, Maryland-based safety consultant Jake Pauls estimates that stair-related accidents cost the United States up to $10 billion to $12 billion each year. For business owners, an accident on a staircase may result in excessive sums of both time and money. Employee slip-and-fall accidents may lead to absenteeism, decreased productivity, liability litigation, and more. The costs can be even higher when stairs cause harm to a storefront customer, triggering bodily harm, negligence claims, and time consuming litigation.
Businesses are not the only entities that have cause for concern, according to consultants at Eagle Mat. For property managers and homeowners, stairway accidents and negligence claims are a very real threat. The most common example occurs when a guest or tenant suffers bodily harm from an accident on a staircase that is uncovered, or that has otherwise been left to fall into disrepair by the property owner.
To prevent stairway accidents, property owners must invest in high quality stair tread solutions. For indoor applications, vinyl and rubber stair treads are most effective. Both come in a variety of surface textures that provide excellent traction and moisture control. Additionally, rubber and vinyl treads are available in dozens of vivid colors designed to complement preexisting interior décor with minimal disturbance.
For outdoor stairways, Eagle Mat recommends heavy-duty aluminum stair treads. Aluminum treads are built to withstand harsh weather, sweltering heat, and frigid cold. Moreover, aluminum stair treads are available with traction enhancing grit strips to ensure maximum grip and safety.
This month, Eagle Mat and Floor Products is committed to helping property owners make stairways a safer place. From now until February 28th, customers will earn free shipping and a 100% Price Match Guarantee* on all online orders.
