Coefficient of Friction (the opposite of slipperiness) is
directly related to slip/fall accidents. An adequate (COF) range (from .60 to .80)
will reduce claims an average of 80% (consistent with OSHA claims). Lower readings
will increase claims proportionately. This supposition is supported by the
findings that after an etch (Western Slip-Stop), Brand X reduced a beginning 80% reduction
to an average of only 23% after one year, 10% reduction the second year, 5% reduction
third year and no reduction thereafter. (From corporate Risk/Loss Department).
pHluorus will initially etch and maintain every day as a
continual traction treatment of a (COF) of .70 or better (supported by Sacramento
test). The result, an 80% reduction of slip/fall claims. Thus, with a reversal
of environmental cost factors a $58,113,120.00 profit can be estimated from
available information. A choice of (HF) acid over Brand X acid is the key
The corporate owned operation enjoy self-insured status, thus
plus modification factors are not a controlling factor, although the trust fund has
certain limitations. Thus, claims reduction savings would be more direct. In
the franchise owners insurance situation, there is no bare if rates become
exorbitant, since corporate will not allow it, therefore out is the only
alternative. Out, because of environmental cost factors, is now
unnecessary because of the invention of pHluorus. Thus, more thriving franchises and
more profits to corporate.
