Slips, trips, and falls can be a significant liability risk for property managers at all times during the year, and protecting against them is essential. Here are some ways that property managers can protect themselves against slips:

  1. Regular inspections: Property managers should conduct regular inspections of the property to identify and address potential slip hazards. This includes checking for wet or slippery surfaces, uneven or damaged flooring, loose rugs or mats, and other hazards.
  2. Maintenance and repair: Property managers should promptly repair or replace any flooring, stairs, or other damaged or worn surfaces. This can help to prevent slips and falls caused by uneven or slippery surfaces.
  3. Cleaning procedures: Property managers should establish and implement effective cleaning procedures to keep the property clean and free of slip hazards. This includes regularly mopping or cleaning floors, removing debris and obstacles, and using caution signs or barricades to warn of wet or slippery surfaces.
  4. Training and education: Property managers should provide training and education to their staff on slip and fall prevention, including identifying and addressing slip hazards, cleaning procedures, and adequately using warning signs and barricades.
  5. Insurance: Property managers should carry liability insurance, including coverage for slip and fall accidents. This can help to protect them if a slip and fall accident occurs on the property.

By taking these steps, property managers can help to reduce the risk of slips and falls on their property and protect themselves against liability.
