    5 installations for the shower to prevent slips

    As we get older, it is important to take precautions to prevent slips, trips and falls, which can lead to severe injuries for the elderly. Sadly, accidents around the home do occur too, but there are measures you can take to prevent them. For example, installations for the shower help you minimise the risk of slips, where conditions are dangerous for those with mobility issues.

    Preventing slips in the home: installations for the shower

    Installations for the shower to prevent slips in the bathroom needn’’t be costly or even intrusive adjustments. These aids have been specially designed with the user in mind, creating a useable and efficient hygiene space.

    Some installations for the shower to prevent slips include, but are not limited to:

    1. Shower grab handles and rails for stability
    2. Walk-in showers and shower trays for ease of access
    3. Shower mats and strips for grip
    4. Shower seats and stools for support
    5. Shower boards to aid washing

    Claiming compensation for shower-related accidents

    If you have been involved in a shower accident, such as a slip or a fall, due to faulty shower aids or poor installation, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation for the harm and distress you have been made to endure.

    Both manufacturers, suppliers and workmen have a legal obligation to ensure your health and safety in relation to the duty they perform. In the case where you suffer an injury due to their negligence, they can be held liable for the harm and distress you have been made to endure.
