All employers have a duty of care towards their employees, whether you’re running a restaurant, workshop, warehouse operation or any other workplace environment. In Western Australia, the law requires employers to implement a high standard of safety and health at their workplace, so that the risk of harm and injury to employees can be greatly minimised.
Aside from providing the relevant safety information and training to employees while also supervising their activities, one of the best ways to minimise risk of harm and ensure a safe working environment is by designing and maintaining your workplace while considering OHS (Occupational Health and Safety) in the first place.
In this post, we’ll be running through the benefits of installing anti-slip flooring in your workplace as a part of your plan to create a safer working environment:
1. REDUCE ACCIDENTS & INJURIES
There are many anti-slip flooring solutions available out there, but all of them promise to create a safer working environment by reducing the number of slips, falls and injuries that can result in certain workplaces; especially those that fall into the productive sector; think labs, restaurants, workshops and factories, where people are constantly moving around to get things done. With an anti-slip flooring solution to keep your employee’s sturdy on the ground, you won’t have to worry about putting your employees at risk or the repercussions that could result from that.
2. A DURABLE, LONG-LASTING SOLUTION
Workplaces see a whole load of foot traffic, dropped objects, spilt substances, and no shortage of wear and tear over the years. For that reason, a durable, long-lasting flooring solution is optimal; and anti-slip flooring promises to tick all these boxes and more, thanks to its hardy composition.
3. ENJOY EASY MAINTENANCE
One more great thing about anti-slip flooring is that it’s super easy to maintain! No matter the amount of foot traffic or what kind of substances end up spilt on the floor, easy maintenance is a guarantee with the majority of non-slip flooring solutions.
4. SAVE MONEY
Anti-slip flooring is not only quick, easy and relatively inexpensive to install. It will also help you save money related to worker’s compensation; that you may have had to pay out to injured employees as a result of having unsafe flooring installed.
5. CUSTOMISE ACCORDING TO YOUR NEEDS
Another important thing about anti-skid flooring is that it can be customised to look how you want. For instance, epoxy flooring solutions are available in a wide range of colours, and can even be customised further with stunning aggregates! Alternatively, you can simply have an anti-slip flooring solution installed over the top of some pre-existing floor materials so you can keep the same look, just with plenty more benefits.
