The employer is a restaur ant where employees prepare and serve food. The employee was being trained in th e dough area for that specific workstation. The employee had finished work for t he day and was clocking out at the computer station. He lost his footing and whe n he tried to stop his fall by reaching out for a nearby counter, he impaled his right hand on a metal object. The object turned out to be a "Ticket Taker", whi ch is a metal paper holder spike used for receipts. The floors are mopped every night before the employees leave and were not completely dry at the time. Despit e the process of squeegeeing the floors after mopping, they are still slippery. Anti-slip floor mats are placed throughout the kitchen area, including near the counter where the employee slipped.
