An occupier may be held liable for slips, trips, and falls if they fail to provide a reasonable standard of care in
keeping their premises from hazards.
The best way to avoid liability is by diligently keeping premises free of hazards. This diligence, in combination with consistent documentation, will be one of the most effective ways to defend your organization against a claim or lawsuit, should one occur.
