NFSI Announces Slip-Fall Prevention Coalition - Facility Organizations and HFI to Support
Date:9/18/2013

Southlake, TX (PRWEB) September 18, 2013

The non-profit National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) has formed a Slip/Fall Prevention Coalition to reduce slips, trips and falls and related injury. The coalition consists of the NFSI Board of Directors (BOD), NFSI members, and non-member organizations seeking to advance the health and safety mission of the NFSI.

"Our goal is to build a comprehensive network of organizations, associations, unions, and other stakeholders impacted by the growing costs of slips, trips and falls," said Russell Kendzior, president of NFSI. "The problem cannot be solved by the NFSI alone, but NFSI will serve as catalyst to advance the discussion."

The first NFSI coalition involves a consortium of prominent organizations interested in the prevention of slip, trip and fall (STF) incidents in restaurants and foodservice environments, where these events are a leading cause of occupational injuries.

The Boise-based Healthy Facilities Institute® (HFI) Educational Center and Website will provide marketing support and exposure within the facilities cleaning industry.

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) will also directly support the outreach.

Coalitions will be formed or strengthened in markets of the AARP (elderly Americans), Foodservice (e.g., National Restaurant Association), Retail (e.g., National Retail Federation), Hospitality (e.g., IEHA, AH&LA), Institutional Cleaning (e.g., IEHA, ISSA), and Education (e.g., National PTA, ASBO) sectors among others.

Members of the Slip/Fall Prevention Coalition will be recognized in NFSI literature and membership materials.
