It’s important that potential hazards for a slip, trip or fall be clearly signposted and visible. At Accident Advice Helpline, our years of experience in all areas of personal injury compensation has allowed us to become expert when it comes to exposing risks and poor health and safety policies. In this article, we take a look at what to do about a clear spillage that has no wet floor signs present in a hotel.
Slips and trips: See the signs
Slipping, tripping or falling can result in serious injuries such as torn tendons, head injuries and cuts and bruises. Wet floor signs urge a member of the public to exercise caution and to avoid the area if possible to reduce the chances of a slip, trip or fall. If there are no signs present, it exposes members of the public to serious risks.
Report it to the management
The reason that there are no wet floor signs could be quite simple. It may not yet have been brought to the attention of the management or hotel staff. You should duly inform the reception desk that there this is a spillage and a risk of slipping, tripping or falling for their guests. Hotels will want to ensure that no harm comes to their guests and should acknowledge your report or complaint and respond to it as soon as possible.
