Supermarkets Fatal Slip

A large supermarket chain has been heavily fined following an accident in which a customer was killed in a slipping accident. What happened and what are the lessons for other businesses when managing wet floors?

An elderly customer suffered a fatal head injury when he slipped on water from a broken chiller unit.
Customers had been allowed to access the aisle despite the growing pool of water.
If you have hard floors, be prepared for potential spills with equipment ready to hand and clear procedures for staff to follow.
