Salon Slips and Falls Can Cause More Than A Bad Hair Day

Salon Slips and Falls Can Cause More Than A Bad Hair Day

A visit to a hair salon is supposed to be one of life’s little, recurring luxuries. Doing something nice for themselves, men and women alike enjoy the time spent in the chair, chatting with their stylist and letting them work their magic. While customers expect to leave a salon feeling good, all it takes is a slip and fall to turn a pleasant afternoon into a painful ordeal.

Unfortunately, salons present a ripe environment for slips and falls. Unless salon owners take some basic, common-sense, and very affordable steps to minimize the dangers that lay on their floor, they could see their business take a big haircut in the form of lawsuits and insurance claims.

Salon Slip and Fall Dangers

The very nature of a salon creates several risk factors that can lead to injury-causing slip and fall accidents. The floor is continuously covered in hair clippings. All that washing and conditioning, and customers with wet hair moving around, can lead to the accumulation of moisture in puddles or simply a damp floor. And that floor gets a lot of foot traffic throughout the day, with a constant parade of customers and stylists moving from station to station.

While most salon owners and staff are relatively diligent with their sweeping and mopping, those essential tasks can fall by the wayside on particularly busy days. And all it takes is one minute between the time a hazard arises and when salon staff addresses it for someone to come crashing to the ground with a severe spinal or head injury.
