Slips are no respect to a person, no respect to a place it happens to anyone anywhere. 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. Highly polished surfaces, freshly wax ceramic and marble floors may be attractive to look at but around certain to walk on.
