Look out! Those trip hazards are going to be a problem. You could say they might trip you up (I’m so sorry, it had to be done).
But seriously they need to be fixed. We live in a very litigious society these days, and even if no-one hurts themselves, there’s a good chance that someone will pretend they did, and then you find yourself on the wrong end of an expensive injury claim.
FIXING IT IS HANDS DOWN THE CHEAPEST OPTION.
No matter the trip hazards, repairing them and making them safe is going to be cheaper than paying out an injury claim.
And what if someone does get hurt? None of us really want the guilt of knowing that our lack of action caused someone pain.
DON’T LET THE OH&S OFFICER SEE IT!
I’ll admit, OH&S Officers are a great source of business for an operation like HALLMARK COMMERCIAL.
So before they get round and tell you to have it fixed, give us a call and we’ll make sure they stay off your back.
IS IT URGENT?
Yep, unfortunately. No matter how big a trip hazard might be, if someone can get hurt then you need to avoid that straight away.
If you want the boring official line, SafeWorkSA has a bit to say on the matter.
We can get out to site and cordon off or secure the hazard to avoid any injuries being sustained immediately. Then, we can provide you with a quote for a proper repair that is safe and appealing.
Well, that’s the easy bit. Just call us. Or, contact us here. We’re the experts in commercial maintenance, and that includes safety and hazard elimination. For your peace of mind, and for the safety of anyone who enters your commercial property, you can look to us to make sure everyone is protected.
