When might you need help to deal with slips, trips and falls in Stockton-on-Tees? There was a time when getting ahead was based only on how big you were, how powerful; and then later it was about how much money and influence you had. This was before there were rights – or at least enough of them.
This was not a fair way of doing things. And as the working classes grew in size to the point where the elite were unable to control them, rights were awarded as a way to make things fair.
You may ask what this has to do with slips, trips and falls in Stockton-on-Tees, but it has everything to do with it. This is because we no longer live in a time where the powerful can ignore their responsibility – at least not in every case. And this is true of accidents.
Taking responsibility of slips, trips and falls in Stockton-on-Tees
It is no longer about the survival of the strongest, as we live in a modern society. And what this means is that there is such a thing as corporate responsibility. And that is a powerful thing, as before this was true many could be victims of wrong doing by the powerful and nothing would be done about it.
The thing about slips, trips and falls is that there are far too many that could have been avoided. These ones are down to irresponsible companies cutting corners and allowing hazards to hurt their customers.
The reality is that businesses have a responsibility to make sure that their customers, shoppers, or whoever – however they enter their premises, are provided with a safe environment and not put at risk. In the old days it was just down to luck, now it is actually regulated for.
