Tens of thousands of slip-and-falls caused by ice every year

December 17, 2020

With this week’s winter storm in the northeastern US dropping record amounts of snow in many places, slip-and-fall injuries gain a lot of attention, and for good reason. Every year in the US, there are more than 20,000 slip-and-fall injuries caused by ice, sleet, or snow that lead to missed work days. For insurance companies and healthcare providers, the average cost of a hospital claim from a slip-and-fall injury exceeds $30,000. This leads to reduced quality of life for people, creates liabilities for businesses and retailers where falls occur, and increases insurance costs for everyone.

The majority of slip-and-fall injuries are preventable, and here at Elemental Coatings, we’re working to make stairs, walkways, and other paths safer for everyone. Our anti-icing solution makes ice less likely to stick to any surface coated with our product, meaning ice is easier to remove and is much less of a safety concern. It also complements the use of salt and sand by providing an additional layer of safety. Even more, the coating is always there, so if a business is slow to remove ice after a winter storm, the coating will be there to provide some protection. Click here to see our coating in action.
