A No-Slip Business Decision

On a rainy day, the entrance way of every store and office building becomes a danger zone - for customers and staff. Every marble floor that's just been mopped, every kitchen in every restaurant or school cafeteria, every bathtub in every hotel, every washroom floor with a few drops of water - all these places and more are legal battlefields. Every commercial property or public building - and even private dwellings and bath areas - are faced with this potential liability.
