Consider the most common causes wet surfaces; it can be as ordinary as mud and leaves in a rain paddled to an obscurest spill like oil, grease and fluid. Dry spills they are deceivingly dangerous powders, dusts, plastic wrappings, granules all quickly accumulate creating hazardous walking surfaces.
