Many floors fail to meet minimum ANSI slip-resistance standard

Buildings in Georgia and around the country often have floors made out of materials that have been chosen for their durability and appearance rather than their safety benefits, according to study from the risk-assessment firm CNA. The Virginia-based company looked into slip-and-fall accidents that took place over a seven-year period, and researchers found that about half of the sites they surveyed used flooring materials that failed to meet the minimum standards for slip resistance set by the American National Standards Institute.
