The website Sustainable Plant has a survey out designed to educate people about slip and fall injuries. These injuries kill many more people each year than you likely believe and, because of that, they do merit attention from plant owners, retail shop owners and even private homeowners.
How Many People Die
Every year, approximately 17,000 people die due to injuries sustained during a slip and fall accident. This number may surprise you. It is, in fact, comparable to the populations of most small cities. With this many people being killed every year by these accidents, it's no wonder that they're in the news a lot.
Remember that populations such as senior citizens are particularly at risk of dying in one of these accidents because of their typically fragile health and bodies.
