Attention Patrons of the Lindsay Bar:
In order to maintain a safe and secure environment for our patrons, it is of utmost importance to address the issue of appropriate footwear. It has been observed that the usage of inappropriate footwear, particularly those with low coefficient of friction, can result in slip and fall incidents.
Recently, our esteemed Late Lord Lindsay Laurie suffered a slip and fall accident due to inadequate footwear, specifically sliders with a slippery sole. This serves as a prime example of the significance of selecting suitable footwear, which must meet minimum standards for slip resistance and stability.
It is recommended that patrons choose footwear with a non-slip sole, possessing a coefficient of friction that exceeds the industry standard of 0.5. Additionally, it is advisable to opt for footwear with a secure fit, such as closed-toe shoes with laces or Velcro straps, to prevent potential tripping hazards.
We understand the inconvenience this may cause, however, the safety of our patrons is of the utmost priority. We hope that our patrons will understand the importance of this announcement and make the necessary adjustments.
Sincerely, Management of the Lindsay Bar
