Review – Using People Treads & Handi Treads to Stop the Slip: Reducing Slips, Trips, and Falls

Most Emergency Room visits have one thing in common. It's not lightning strikes, shark bites, zombies, or national emergencies. Thom Disch's book, Stop the Slip: Reducing Slips, Trips, and Falls makes clear that E.R. visits are caused by common incidents that occur in your own home and workplace. We install two of their products, People Treads, the self-adhesive clear stair treads for inside the home, and Handi Treads to keep you safe outdoors. Read this before you or the people you love become a statistic.
