Are there hazards in parking lots?

Parking lots are generally located adjacent to workplaces. Even though you may be visiting a business, there is a possibility that you can be injured. The major risk at parking lots includes falls resulting from slips and trips. Workplaces and businesses can help reduce slips, trips, and fall injuries by having a written policy or procedure about the safe walking conditions and surfaces. Parking lots must be inspected on a regular basis and any defects repaired.
