HFI Launches Slip and Fall Prevention Survey

The Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI)—in collaboration with the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) and Kaivac—has launched a Slip and Fall Prevention Survey. The organizations created the survey specifically for members of the jansan industry, but it is relevant to facilities management professionals as well.

The survey questions appear below. To see how well you did on the quiz, check FacilityBlog tomorrow for results.
