Today I read that Morrisons were fined £17,500 after an employee slipped as a result of grease on a highly polished mezzanine floor in one of their stores. The flooring is the same as other stores across the country, and customers are equally at risk of accidents. The employee suffered a nasty and painful fractured elbow. I would expect her to be making a claim for compensation.

Hopefully the company will now take steps to deal with the problem. However, it is difficult to see how the company did not appreciate the slipperiness of the flooring when choosing the flooring material in the first place.
