One of the most common types of workplace accidents is slip and fall incidents. Due to the high frequency of this type of accident, federal safety standards have been established to ensure that the workplace is safe for employees. Unfortunately, employers and managers may fail to uphold these regulations, resulting in employees suffering injuries and even fatalities.

- Slippery surfaces
- Building entrances
- Poorly lit areas
- Exposed cords
