Improved safety flooring begins with anti-slip surfaces and clear traffic marking.
An anti-slip finish can be applied to areas subject to wetness or grease to provide a safer operating environment with less possibility of accidental falls.
Safety and Traffic Marking
Traffic markings and safety lines may be applied to aisleways, storage areas, or entire floors to increase visibility and present a more functional workplace.
The Finished Result
An attractive and functional environment with an improved level of safety that will provide your employees with a more enjoyable work experience.
Safety is a priority in every industry. Slip, trip and fall (STF) accidents injure thousands of workers every year, with nearly 50% of those workers sustaining a severe injury. In fact, 17% of all disabling occupational injuries can be attributed to falls in the workplace.
Workers in the food, pharmaceutical and healthcare industries are among the most at-risk for STF-related accidents. This is due to the fact that these workers are constantly on their feet where there is an increased potential for wet, slopped and slippery floors.
Controlling STF Accidents with Safety Floors
No floor can truly be classified as “anti-slip”. However, you can achieve a greatly enhanced level of slip resistance with the use of various aggregates and additives in your polymer floor matrix. Many of Applied’s “Safety Floors” are designed to create highly tractable flooring solutions with the added benefits of easy maintenance and extremely slow wear.
