There are a variety of different products that can help protect against slip and falls, and create a safer environment for your staff and customers, patients or guests.
Here are a few to consider:
Non-slip mats: Non-slip mats can be placed in areas that are prone to spills or wetness, such as entryways, kitchens, or bathrooms. These mats provide extra traction and can help prevent slips and falls.
Slip-resistant shoes: Slip-resistant shoes have specially designed soles that provide extra traction on wet or slippery surfaces. Encourage your staff to wear slip-resistant shoes, particularly if they work in areas with wet or slippery floors.
Traction-enhancing strips: Traction-enhancing strips can be applied to stairs or other surfaces to create a slip-resistant surface. These strips are particularly effective in areas that are frequently wet or slippery.
Anti-slip coatings: Anti-slip coatings, like those applied by Floor Friction, can create a slip-resistant surface. These coatings can be particularly effective in areas that are frequently wet or exposed to oils or grease, such as industrial or commercial kitchens.
Micro-tread treatments: Micro-tread treatments, like those applied by Floor Friction, are long lasting and formed by an environmentally friendly chemical reaction which creates an invisible, sophisticated micro tread design on the surface of hard mineral tiles and flooring.
Handrails: Handrails can provide additional support for employees who are walking on stairs or other elevated surfaces. Installing handrails can help prevent slips and falls by providing something for employees to hold onto.
It is important to evaluate the specific needs of your workplace and choose the products that are most appropriate for your environment. Call Floor Friction today at 203-649-8720 to discuss your options.
