Slip and Fall accidents are the second leading cause of accidental death. The only greater cause of death is automobile accidents.
Adults: At age 60+ slip and fall accidents become the leading cause of death in the United States. People are remaining in their homes longer and new safety measures may need to be added – like improving slippery stairways.
Children: running in their socks on slick hardwood steps will almost certainly end up in a fall at some point.
So if you have bare hardwood traffic areas like steps the answer is: install a runner. Not only does it create a good gripping surface and a soft surface to reduce slipping it can greatly reduce noise.
