According to the Health and Safety Executive, slips and trips are the most common cause of injury at work. In fact, on average they cause over a third of all major injuries. HSE statistics suggest that the majority of these accidents are caused by slipping, which happens when floor surfaces are contaminated. So, how safe are your floors?
Epoxy floors and resin flooring provide a range of anti-slip coating options that are tailored to suit your individual requirements. They work perfectly for areas that often become wet or contaminated with foodstuffs, such as industrial kitchens and warehouses.
Naturally, splashes and spillages should be cleaned up as soon as possible. However, this regular cleaning, with mechanical scrubbers and detergent that are created to stop the build-up of general dirt, will over time impact the anti-slip effectiveness of the floor covering. In general, slippages occur on wet floors or when an employee is wearing wet shoes and not on clean, dry surfaces. Investing in tailor-made epoxy anti-slip flooring or a non-slip resin screed will help keep employees and visitors safe.
It is important that the relevant information is sought when specifying a floor and there are many types of slip resistance tests available. Our epoxy resin and resin flooring systems have been independently evaluated using the Pendulum Test Values (PTV’s) which is the HSE UK’s preferred test method.
Non-slip epoxy and resin flooring systems are available in an array of attractive colours and can be matched to company logos and branding. With the addition of creative line marking anti-slip epoxy floors and resin screeds your industrial flooring will look fantastic.
