Maintenance is key to preventing trip and falls on your property. Potholes, broken curbs, or uneven surfaces could cause someone to trip and fall.  Something else to consider is making sure there is clear visual distinction between walking surfaces and any steps or change in elevation. An easy way to make sure your customers don’t miss a step or stumble over a possible trip hazard is to paint the object with a bright colored exterior rated paint with a non-slip additive.

There are several additives available on the market. One our clients have told us they like is SharkGrip which is available thru Sherwin Williams.  You add it to the paint to increase the slip resistance of the finish. Below are some examples of conditions you might consider painting.

Painting these or similar conditions could help reduce the risk of someone falling on your property.
