Occupational Health & Safety Requirements
Most slip and fall accidents occur when the surface has been contaminated. Risk assessments typically identify examples of slip hazards as spillage of or presence of liquid and solid substances, change from wet to dry; floor rubbish; unsuitable footwear; slopes and changes of level as well as poor lighting.
Antiskid Industries has been involved in the installation of floors for the food industry for many years. Over that journey we have developed relationships with all the major manufacturers and know intimately the relative qualities of all the products available. We will assess the particular circumstances of your requirements and recommend the best solution to solve your situation within the food processing industry. HACCP flooring is one of the most important factors within a food processing environment and our recommendations will always be based around best practice for your industry.
HACCP Flooring Health & Safety Features
HACCP flooring health & safety features include a surface that is highly resistant to chemical attack and the continual action of traffic. Antiskid products help minimise the physical and biological risk of potential hazards. Antiskid flooring solutions resin bases are all certifiable food grade and will not introduce any toxicity or odour to your environment during installation or over the products long term life.
Even with the best Hygiene practices there is still a risk of bacterial attachment. Antimicrobial flooring offers continuous protection for all environments where hygiene is paramount. Industries like the food, beverage and healthcare industries.
The complete range of Antiskid flooring coatings have been rigorously tested and certified for Fire Resistance.
Strong-smelling and solvent-containing products are often responsible for sensitivity reactions of applicators and end users. The Antiskid range of coatings are classified as VOC Free with a neutral odour.
Waterproof & Seamless
Various environmental and health protection laws dictates that floor coatings have to provide an impermeable surface requiring reliable containment and disposal of liquid pollutants such as those in food processing environments. Antiskid applications feature seamless wall to floor coving, resulting in a fully seamless solution that is not only easily cleaned & waterproof but creates a totally impervious surface to restrict any microbial activity. And the products that Antiskid would recommend and specify for the food industry, such as Sika Purcem and Flowcrete Flowfresh, have been granted the highly regarded HACCP Accreditation.
HACCP Accreditation is granted to products rather than organisations so it is important to note that, while Antiskid do not hold this acreditation, the products that we would recommend for you do.
