Cintas Hosts Slips, Trips, and Falls Webinar

Industry experts from the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) and the insurance industry will provide attendees with critical information on recent developments in slips, trips, and falls standards, how and when standards will impact their business, and what organizations can do to limit their exposure to expensive lawsuits.

“NFSI research shows that for every dollar spent on floorcare programs, foodservice operators will spend three times more on slip and fall accidents,” says David Collette, Director of Foodservice Marketing, Cintas.

“The foodservice industry needs help to manage the safety of their floors. This webinar is designed to educate attendees on how to proactively reduce risk in their facilities in the wake of new standards.”

Webinar panelists include Russ Kendzior, an expert on slips, trips, and falls accident prevention and President of the NFSI; Dave Ludwin, General and Products Liability Risk Control Director at CNA, a leading commercial insurance writer; and Dennis Fetzer, an expert in working with corporate safety to develop customer accident prevention programs.

By the conclusion of the webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Know why slips, trips and falls are a problem that must be addressed proactively
  • Understand details of the upcoming standards
  • Understand what actions can be taken to reduce risk and avoid costs
  • Gain insight on how to implement a Safe Floor program

“Slips, trips and falls are a leading workplace injury, causing 15 percent of accidental deaths and presenting major costs to small and large businesses alike,” Collette says.

“We are pleased to team up with such an esteemed panel to help foodservice organizations prepare themselves for the new standards.”
