Subway is a privately-held American fast-food restaurant franchise that mainly sells submarine sandwiches (subs) and salads. As one of the most rapidly growing franchises worldwide, it has 44,882 restaurants in 112 countries and territories. The United States has 26,646 outlets. It is the largest single-brand restaurant chain and the largest restaurant operator in the world.
Due to its immense popularity, Subway can become so busy that the workers may not always be aware of the many spills that occur on the premises, thereby creating a hazard for the customers. The workers have a responsibility to ensure that none of the customers slip, trip or fall.

Additionally, at some locations, there are taller tables that can be hazardous to the safety of customers if they protrude into their path.
