How Much are Fraudulent Slips, Trips, and Falls Costing the UK Retail Sector Annually?

Do you know how much fraudulent slips, trips, and fall cost the retail sector in the UK per annum? It’s a lot more than you might suspect!

Fraudulent slips, trips and falls claims culture costs businesses more than half a billion a year. It is estimated that many organisations are losing around five per cent of their annual revenue to fraud.

Fraudulent Slips, Trips, and Falls

Audit tracking, litigation and fraudulent claims have resulted in an increased requirement for businesses to store and retrieve security footage over longer periods of time in order to help effectively defend against wrongful allegations.

By 2021 it is estimated that more than 3.4 trillion hours of CCTV footage will be captured daily. To date, the amount of surveillance footage an organisation can save has been limited by physical servers and the sheer scale and size of data. Typically, data is only stored for 30 days. However, with the average claim arriving after 90 days this is far too short. Businesses and organisations are left without the evidence needed to defend themselves.


Fraud is a Growing Problem

Fraud is a high volume occurrence, present in any organisation of any size, and is an ongoing business cost. It is important to keep in mind that fraud is a dynamic crime and fraudsters are inventive, adaptable, and able to quickly seize new opportunities to commit this crime. Therefore, ongoing investment in finding methods of raising levels of fraud resilience (a measure of protection against fraud) is growing increasingly important.
