One of the most common forms of accidents at hospitality venues is a slip-and-fall accident. The frequency is so great, this phrase is now a common legal term. Common causes of these accidents include carpets not properly secured to the floor, electrical cords laid across floors, wet floors caused by leaking ceilings or janitorial work, objects or liquids on stairs, and hand railings that fail. There are many slip-and-fall precautions a facility can take.
