Non-Slip Flooring

As part of any maintenance plan - minimising the risk of slips and falls is a top priority, as these are amongst the most common types of injuries in the workplace. These types of accidents account for about 86% of total injuries, and 90% of these happen due to the floor being wet. These injuries obviously have an impact on the individual hurt first and foremost but secondary to that they also affect a company who could be financially liable as well as the costs incurred by of loss of staff and productivity.

 

MINIMISING TRIPS AND FALLS

To minimise trips and falls the first measure would be to make sure the floor is clean and dry. However, this is not always possible, especially in environments such as production and food manufacture. There can sometimes be conflict between the cleaning maintenance required for health and hygiene and the surface roughness of the floor to prevent slips trips and falls.

 

MANAGING THE RISK OF SLIP RESISTANCE

When selecting the texture of the floor surface for required slip-resistance, the four most important issues to consider are degree of contamination, applied cleaning regime, slopes, and the shoes or boots that personnel are wearing.

Also each business and facility has its own set of requirements that the flooring needs to match up to including factors such as impact resistance, rolling load resistance, wear resistance, safety regulations, antistatic performance, chemical or fire resistance and increasingly, quick and efficient installation.
