Many slips are avoidable; the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimates that at least 50% of all slips are preventable. It’s estimated that slips account for 600,000 hospital bed days each year, and, if the HSE figure is correct, over 300,000 of those beds could be used for a more urgent cause if more action was taken to prevent slips and falls.
In short, there needs to be more non slip flooring!
In recent years, it’s become increasingly common to see adverts on TV urging people to claim compensation for a ‘slip, trip or fall.’ It’s no coincidence that the number of people taking their compensation claims to court – and winning – has increased too. Simple measures, such as installing non slip floors on slippery surfaces, can be taken to reduce liability of the company or business.
Gripfast have a range of non slip floors to make slippery surfaces easier and safer to walk on. With a number of decorative finishes available, non slip flooring is an attractive and practical solution to reducing the risk of slips and falls. Gripfast also have other solutions including Anti Slip Decking.
Another popular product, take a look at Anti Slip Strips.
Non slip flooring can either be installed to cover the entire surface area, which is ideal for indoor flooring such as in a shopping centre or office building, or strips can be placed to improve friction. The latter is great for those on a low budget or a large surface area, and allows the floor patterning underneath to remain visible too.
Gripfast are the leading supplier of non slip flooring
We have worked with a huge number of well-known companies across a range of industries including the rail, education, food and engineering industry. Where lots of liquid is transferred or used around premises, such as factories or garages, non slip flooring is vital. Fluids such as oil and grease are incredibly slippery, and the installation of non slip floors can help to reduce the likelihood of serious injury incurred from slipping.
